Ornamentation of the Joint

Curated by Allison Peller


April 30 - May 21, 2016

Pfizer Building 630 Flushing Ave, 3rd Floor Brooklyn, NY 11206

Artists: Jude Broughan, Mark Dorf, Penelope Umbrico, and Letha Wilson

Ornamentation of the Joint, curated by Allison Peller, is an exhibition that includes the work of four different photographers who use the photograph as material both physically and conceptually. With work by Jude Broughan, Mark Dorf, Penelope Umbrico, and Letha Wilson, the exhibition includes photographs that are sculptural, painterly, and could even be considered performative. By bridging materials and methods, the artists create a joint that draws attention to the conceptual juxtapositions and paradoxes, such as nature vs science; materiality and immateriality; and the artificial vs the natural found within their work.

Ornamentation of the Joint is presented as part of a festival of final projects curated by the inaugural class of SVA MA Curatorial Practice.
