Exhibit Seeks the Beautiful Amid the Bureaucratic
Oct. 14, 2011
On Saturday at 7 p.m., CentralTrak will host the opening reception for CIncArt: The Convention on Incorporated Art.
CIncArt is a group exhibition highlighting 10 contemporary art projects within a trade show format.
“It has become commonplace for artists to create work in the form of bureaus, laboratories, museums, companies, etc.,” said Tom Russotti, CentralTrak resident and curator of the exhibition. “Artists, artist groups and art projects variously employ the forms and techniques of organizational structures in both their work and practice. CIncArt examines this phenomenon.”
This interactive exhibition will include performances and events in and outside the gallery space. Work will also be presented through a mixture of media and performances by the artists and their representatives.
Centraltrak is a Deep Ellum artist residency and gallery that is part of the UT Dallas School of Arts and Humanities.
“I'm excited for our second show of the season, which is unconventional in that it is interactive and performative based. This show strays from the traditional gallery experience,” said CentralTrak director Heyd Fontenot. “The emphasis isn't on aesthetic beauty or ‘consumable’ decorative arts.”
The exhibition runs until Nov. 12.
