KATZMAN CONTEMPORARY presents -- IMPOSTERS -- featuring JANET JONES, BRADEN LABONTE, MEGHAN PRICE, SUSAN SCHELLE -- APRIL 29 to JUNE 3 -- In response to Zeke Moores’ Cast Off, where ordinary discarded objects are cast into permanence, KATZMAN CONTEMPORARY presents IMPOSTERS, an intimate exhibition that explores our current challenge of determining “authenticity” and “believability” when confronted with information. In our era of fake news, propaganda, alternative perspectives, zombie lies, conspiracy theories, and falsified academic papers that have us questioning the validity of any and all information, IMPOSTERS presents artwork that questions the nature of what is seen. The exhibition features two new photograms (2017) by Janet Jones entitled Space Junk that make the viewer wonder as to the alien origins of the materials; two delicate pieces by Meghan Price in which the artist literally blurs the lines between the pinstripe fabric and her stitching interventions; photographs of objects by Braden Labonte that seem to be 3D rendered, but are, in fact, actual objects painted to appear as something else; and digital c-prints by Susan Schelle that feature cryptic messages on the branches of trees in response to the tagging practice of forest rangers.
