Johannes Vogt Gallery is pleased to announce “Summer Fling - The Barn Show,” a special exhibition in East Hampton for summer 2016. After a successful first iteration last year, the gallery will return for a singular, comprehensive group show staged once again in a historic barn in the culture rich East End village. Featuring works of over 20 multimedia artists, the exhibition explores our current image culture. In a world seen through screens, experience is governed by the making, sharing and consumption of images, which are in turn marked by their aesthetic appeal and potential virality.
Works in the show range from traditional painted material; to digital paintings and photography, electrical household appliances turned into free-standing sculptures, 3D printed and conceptual wall works, video, web-based works, light sculpture, interactive video installations and live performances. Within this context, and the heightened sensibility of the artist’s eye, their approach to translating digital tools into contemporary storytelling and their apprehended skills of image awareness manifest in each work.
The beauty of a summer fling lies in its predetermined, momentary duration and fleeting temporality. It’s something ephemeral yet strong and captivating. In this vein “Summer Fling - The Barn Show” functions as a short but intense affair with current image culture as it meets object making methodologies - as they are recognized both in the art world and pop culture at large.
