KAREN FINLEY: "SEXT ME IF YOU CAN"
ON VIEW THRU FEBRUARY 9
In the gallery basement will be Karen Finley's Sext Me If You Can, featuring the artwork created by Finley during her recent performance in Coagula Curatorial's booth at the Miami Project Art Fair. Sext Me If You Can is a display of painted images that were “sexted” to Finley during a 2 day duration.
Karen Finley's Sext Me If You Can blurs traditional distinctions of intimacy, which become obsolete under the specter of technology and power relationships are in flux when freedom and control are stored on a microchip. Finley brings the process of art-making back into performance art, by boldy returning to the act of painting and the artist's commitment to studio practice to the center of this technologically-enabled social intervention. Sext Me If You Can opens January 19 and runs thru February 9.
