Opening Reception: Assembling(de)Assembling

Diego Rivera Gallery
800 Chestnut Street

Join us for the opening recpetion of Assembling(de)Assembling, curated by Shanza Elahi and featuring works by Kaifa Chen, Nick Mittelstead, and Rebecca Rippon.

An artist constructs and de-constructs in order to find greater meaning within the world. Whether through repetitive mark making, layering or fragmenting, the artist undergoes a laborious process that involves inspecting a mental or physical space in an attempt to establish a more secure foothold in a complicated world. Assembling(de)Assembling will establish this more secure foothold through work that finds balance between binaries: presence and absence, artificiality and nature, light and dark. Through our shared visual interest in the grid, repetition, unexpected scale, and a unified appreciation of labor as art, we hope to explore and reconcile the binaries of the universe.
