This event has ended.

The project by Curtis Mitchell, featuring two ensembles from his series Personas.
While the viewer of Mitchell's video works is spectacularized, the spectacle is temporarily personalized.

This conceptual thread is enabled by the other works in the show: Seemingly ordinary, mass-produced and impersonal objects are transformed into unique entities by a process that emulates the mundane routines of daily usage. Applying a highly exaggerated version of an object's utilization allows Mitchell to gradually quarry its inherent humanity.

The video installations and objects in this show clearly show that Mitchell is not so much concerned with the material and medium of a piece but rather with the concept of synthesis between human body and manufactured object.

New York based artist Curtis Mitchell received his MFA from Yale University School of Art in 1983.
