This event has ended.

Imaging the Apple is a development of a successful show that toured the Eastern states of Australia in 2004 and 2005. The original exhibition was organized by artist/curator John R. Neeson who is co-curating the New York version with Elizabeth Gower, also a Melbourne based artist/curator.

In the jargon of American jazz musicians a gig was an ‘apple’, and a gig in New York City was the “big apple.” A Jazz interpretation of a standard or popular tune (in itself as iconic as an apple) takes advantage of the listener’s familiarity with the melody to elucidate improvisation. Artists, using different media, have reflected on the mundane image or word, and finding pictorial associations with it, the matching is rational or (in the tradition of Dada and Surrealism) paradoxical. Imaging the Apple features the work of 48 artists, including Yoko Ono’s celebrated Apple. The group show presents apple themed artwork, each piece no larger than 12 cubic inches, in a multimedia installation on the AC’s temporary 6th floor exhibition space.
