Currently on view at Interface Gallery, Oakland is “Producing Space,” a group exhibition of new site responsive works by Aaron Finnis, Cybele Lyle, Amy M. Ho, and Emma Spertus. While pursuing distinct practices, these four artists similarly work with re-purposed images, materials and existing spaces in ways that reference normative modes of representation, while also subverting them, instigating psychological responses and suggesting new possibilities. To varying degrees their architectural and material manipulations call attention to and critique the cultural production of space, exploring relationships between illusion and reality, constructed space, constructed subjectivity and power. For “Producing Space,” the artists literally produce a new space, or set of spatial possibilities, within Interface Gallery with site responsive works that are simultaneously surreal, playful and subversive.
“Producing Space“ is on view through May 11, 2014.
