Event Description

While activists, politicians, and scientists promote being green and sustainable, and argue about fracking and climate change, 440 Gallery hosts Earth, a group exhibition for artists to present their side of the story. A vast landscape, the fragile environment, a speck in the universe or an intimate dance between insects: however you see it, it is our home, and the theme of this year's summer group show.

Earth will explore the shifting nature of terrain - its current state and possible future ones. The thirteen artists and their artwork selected for this show will raise questions, make provocative statements, or let you reach your own conclusions. The artists are: Chris Arabadjis, Eric Banks, Kim Carlino, Ernest Concepcion, Lisa Cooperman, Aimee Hertog, Leah Oates, Harry Newman, Silvana Ravena, Gregg Rosen, Norman Sarachek , Jeanne Marie Wasilik, Ejay Weiss.

Our juror Jill Conner is the New York Editor of Whitehot Magazine, Editor of On-Verge as well as a contributor to Afterimage, ArtUS, Art in America, Interview Magazine, Performance Art Journal and Sculpture Magazine. She is also an AICA-USA Board member. In 2003 Conner received a Master's degree in Art History and Criticism from the State University of New York, with Donald Kuspit as advisor. Her curating and art criticism draws upon the framework of Aristotle's "Poetics" and Norbert Elias' "The Civilizing Process". Conner has taught at Parsons in the New School and Montclair State University with additional presentations at the College Art Association, Pace University, the New York Summer Studio Program of Florida Atlantic University and the New York Studio Residency Program in Brooklyn.
