Coda collective ACT I – Group Exhibition, Nov. 30 – Dec. 3, 2017

Coda Collective Presents: Act I
An exhibition of Five Emerging Artists in collaboration with Grey Projects LA
November 30 – December 3, 2017
Opening reception: Thursday, November 30, 6-10pm

New York, NY – The Coda Collective will open Act I, a group exhibition of five emerging artists, at 23 Warren St., New York, from November 30 to December 3, 2017. An opening reception will be held on November 30, from 6 to 10 pm.

Act I will feature works by Anthony Gelfand, Rachid Kallamni, Valerie Name, and the team of Tommy May and Gwen O’Neil, and will include abstract paintings, mixed media, and photographic abstractions. The exhibition others widely diverse visual narratives on how each of these accomplished young artists interprets their surroundings to stimulate, inspire or disrupt.

Gelfand’s paintings and objects cross boundaries within a complex narrative, prompting viewers to consider alternate points of view and confront repressed thoughts or biases. Kallamni focuses on an avant-garde style of art, characterized chiefly as a basic problem-solving exercise. Name’s new body of work focuses on ephemerality, distortion of scale, and human consequence, while the lack of a common or recognizable medium even further abstracts the work. The collaborative work of O’Neil and May, founders of Grey Projects LA, explore how two individuals of different stylistic and technical origins, encounter a single canvas with the same approach.
