THE CHAOS THEORY: NEW EXHIBITION CELEBRATES TRANSITIONS BETWEEN ORDER AND DISORDER IN RELATIONSHIPS
A unique 28-year friendship between noted interior designer Alexandra Hayden of Octave Studio and art advisor and documentarian Joyce Varvatos has resulted in the new exhibition The Chaos Theory that they jointly curated. Opening August 24 at 112 Hampton Road in Sag Harbor, the show is to be open through Columbus Day.
The Chaos Theory incorporates works by a variety of artists in varied disciplines that epitomize both order and disorder and often combine the two. The curators see the show as a deep and highly personal reflection of their long and close friendship— one filled with the threads of complexity, unpredictability and moments of joy that are found in any such relationship.
At the center of Chaos Theory is the fascinating idea that order and chaos are not always diametrically opposed. Chaotic systems are an intimate mix of the two: from the outside they display unpredictable and chaotic behavior, but expose the inner workings and you discover a perfect set of equations ticking like clockwork. This is the foundation for The Chaos Theory.
The artists that they selected include Sante D’Orazico, Eric Fischl, Nir Hod, Julio Leitao, Liz Markus, McDermott & McGough, Adam McEwen, Steve Miller, Angel Otero, Enoch Perez, Richard Phillips, RETNA, WhisBe., and Dustin Yellin.
There are two opening night parties on Thursday, August 24 from 6 to 9 pm and on Saturday, August 26 from 5 to 8 pm.
