This event has ended.

Freight+Volume announces Likely Stories, a group exhibition of paintings by Eloy Arribas, Becky Brown, Paul Gagner, Samuel Jablon, Ezra Johnson, David Kramer, Walter Robinson, Tom Sanford, Lisa Sanditz, and Ryan Steadman. Curated by Nick Lawrence, the exhibition is on display at the Abrazo and LES Galleries on the first and second floors of The Clemente Center. Sharing common threads of humor and hyperbole, along with a predilection for discreet, anecdotal snapshots, the works on view probe the micro-narratives of everyday life, depicting these private dramas as they unfold in a variety of contexts, from Walter Robinson’s pulp-romance and advertisement-inspired imagery to Tom Sanford’s sardonic, raconteur-like portraits and Lisa Sanditz’s fantastical, surreal tableaux of domestic life. Hinging on the allusive, suggestive nature of language, Eloy Arribas, Becky Brown, Samuel Jablon, Ezra Johnson and David Kramer’s contributions highlight the malleability and duplicity of meaning hidden in words and communication, while Paul Gagner and Ryan Steadman both appropriate the book cover format in their work, alluding to alternative narratives hidden behind our preconceptions of the medium.
