LANGUAGE
Bringing the first glass to your lips is that moment before you first step into the gallery space, knowing little about the exhibition beyond a passing mention from a colleague about traditional materials. Your expectations tempered, you anticipate a group exhibition; a salon-style hang full of figurative, deeply-saturated oil paintings by dead European men. Instead, that first sip evokes the pleasant surprise of stepping into a sharp and satisfyingly cohesive show from an emerging artist collective. You find yourself immersed in a site-specific installation featuring massive blocks of wood and stonethe most traditional, most ancient of materials, renewed and redefined for the current moment. Overwhelmed by their mere presence, you cant quite figure how these materials manage to share the space so gracefully, without the threat of sabotaging one another. Its then that you realize the most successful exhibitions refuse to rely on old master traditions or youthful bombast alone.

* MIXED USE Is a nomadic curatorial collective comprising Amanda Schneider, Jessica Shaefer, and Francesca Sonara.
