This event has ended.

Fridman Gallery presents Partial Eclipse, the product of a yearlong dialogue between New York–based artists Anton Ginzburg and Dasha Shishkin.

Informed by Exquisite Corpse — the surrealist game merging disparate ideas and images to form unexpected wholes — the artists employ collage, chance, and humor to reveal unanticipated relationships between their artworks. Though using seemingly different formal vocabularies, the artists share many themes and interests, with an eye on traditions of Russian Futurists and avant-garde artists, writers, and musicians, including collectives of the 1920s and 1930s, such as the multidisciplinary OPOYAZ and OBERIU.

The exhibition’s title, Partial Eclipse, reflects this collective method between the two artists — and between artists and viewers — of continually concealing and revealing unexpected forms and meanings in a joint and evolving body of work, where images are not simply stand-ins for objects but are objects themselves.

An illustrated catalog with an essay by Katya Tylevich will accompany the exhibition.
