Skipping the Page

Organized by Graham Parker

Exhibition opening Friday, January 18, 2008 6 to 8pm



Skipping the Page takes as its starting point the idea of tempo as it
relates to the printed page, for a group show that touches on several
different artistic disciplines. In doing so it invites us to consider the
technology of the book as a device to depict and respond to the passing of
time, within a cultural moment when other technologies are more often
foregrounded as appropriate to the task.


All of the art works in Skipping the Page invoke an idea of rhythm, of mean
tempo - in many cases invoking that rhythm only to compromise it with acts
of ambiguity, failure, culture jamming, disruption, acceleration and
deceleration from an expected tempo of an action or process. The works in
Skipping the Page then are varied in form but united in exploring the uneven
rhythms of the passage of time. 


Including work by Michael Baers, Svetlana Boym, Beth Campbell, Julie
Chen/Barbara Tetenbaum, Tim Etchells, Hugo Glendinning, Neil Goldberg, Karen
Hanmer, Ryan Holmberg, Vlatka Horvat, Sam Lewitt, Marie Lorenz, Richard
McGuire, Trong Nguyen, Leah Oates, Mark Orange, Garrett Ricciardi, Marco
Roso, Seth Price, Barbara Tetenbaum,  Lan Tuazon, Uwasa, Chris Ware, and
432a(Nami Matsuo & Lars Niki). Organized by Graham Parker. 

Skipping the Page has been organized by artist and curator Graham Parker - a
two-time alum of the Whitney Museum ISP (both Studio and
Architecture/Urbanism programs) and former head of the Northern Masters
degree program for the UK Tate Gallery group.
