NEW YORK, NY.- CHART
is opening Bellyache, a group exhibition curated by Shona McAndrew, featuring work by twenty artists who were either peers or professors of McAndrews at the Rhode Island School of Design. The opening reception today will be from 68 pm, and the exhibition will remain on view through August 18, 2023.
Everybody has had a bellyache. The trick is figuring out why. Is it an overindulgence in sweets or too much coffee? Ones own body revolting against oneself? A bout of anxiety from an important and long-awaited phone call?
One of the greatest sources of bellyaches for artists can undoubtedly be traced back to an anxiety of influence. Painters cannot help but sneak their heroes into each color choice and brushstroke, sculptors into every material choice or conceptual strategy. As such, I am interested in drawing upon a group of artists who I have learned with and artists who I have learned from.
Using my cohort as a case study, I hope to witness how ideas and stylistic approaches can migrate through different practices and how micro-lineages form and fracture over time.
