Tinney Contemporary is pleased to present “Things to Come” an exhibition showcasing the diverse works from their roster of artists and a look ahead at their plans for the new year.
Josh Azzarella interrogates the processes by which images affect collective memory through video installations. Azarella deconstructs this system of images—created and sustained by mass-media and the entertainment industry—by digital manipulation, interrupting hegemonic control over-representation. His work manages to maintain a playful posture, while delving into the complexities of memory, history, and representation.
Tiffany Calvert reproduces Dutch still life paintings with all the mastery of a classically trained painter—but with visual glitches and pixellations that recontextualize the works and place them in dialogue with an evolving, postmodern notion of perspective. Calvert’s paintings are mimetic of low-res, Google search reproductions, pushed to the margins in an economy of images valued for fidelity to the original. Calvert flips this hierarchy on its head by elevating the transient, the reproduced, the modified, the damaged and degraded.
