Marlborough’s All-Star Group Show

from ARTINFO

See Cindy Sherman and Others Celebrate the Art of Fiction in Marlborough’s All-Star Group Show

WHAT: “Blind Cut,” curated by Jonah Freeman and Vera Neykov

WHEN: Opening Jan. 19 – Feb. 18, Tuesday-Saturday 10am – 5:30pm

WHERE: Marlborough Gallery Chelsea, 545 West 25th St., New York

WHY THIS SHOW MATTERS: As news of art forgeries is scattered across the web and legal questions arise with regards to the use appropriation in art, Marlborough Chelsea stages the appropriately timed exhibition “Blind Cut.” The ambitious group show brings together an impressive guest-list of contributing artists and borrowed works that delve into varying forms of fiction. From renderings by the Italian radical architectural firm Superstudio to French faux artist collective Claire Fontaine and surrealist film master Luis Buñuel, “Blind Cut” embraces work that focuses on invention, persona, utopia, and authorship.

Not only is the list of featured artists full of super-stars, like Cindy Sherman, Ed Ruscha, Sherrie Levine, Ryan Gander, and Francis Picabia (among others), but the contributor list for the accompanying publication is full of heavy-hitters as well. Prolific science-fiction writer and the creator of numerous literary fictitious worlds J.G. Ballard and exaggerative memoirist James Frey write complimentary essays and interviews.
