In this culture, people who want to hold on to power realize that they have to control memory—past, present, and future,” Gretchen Bender, Untitled journal entry.

Future Starts Slow takes its name from the 2011 song written and recorded by the British- American band, The Kills. A piercing, fast moving guitar cuts through sound and time as the band sings, “ I could never get back up when the future starts so slow.”

Future Starts Slow is an exhibition comparing and contrasting captured moments and alternative segments of time and space. Curators Christin Graham and Sam Trioli present the works within the exhibition as metaphorical portals, reflecting and expanding experiences and ideas.

Seven included artists cross individual frequencies of ideas, emotional connections and visual movements of space and time. The many parts of this exhibition function together like a musical composition. They collect in a raucous multitude of moments, actions, memories and experiences to yield endless visual and emotional complexity. Conversely, each piece has a border, an edge, or a definitive moment where it starts and ends, a reference point for our natural search for definition.

Future Starts Slow translates these ideas through painting, photography, drawing and sculpture. The carefully selected group of works applies a pluralistic framework to the exhibition. Rather than apply brilliant touches of abstract painting by Nathan Dilworth and Taylor O. Thomas, or the powerful and commanding minimal work of Erika Mahr to one singular narrative, the individualized meanings consist of multiple, parallel states.

Exhibition: Contemporary Practice by Erika Mahr

Contemporary Practice   
The New Hampshire Institute of Art
Manchester, New Hampshire   
February 18 - March 26, 2016

The New Hampshire Institute of Art is pleased to present "Contemporary Practice," a group exhibition curated by Sam Trioli. The exhibition opens on Thursday, February 18th in the Roger Williams Gallery (77 Amherst Street, Manchester, NH) and will remain on view until Saturday, March 26, 2016. This exhibition is free and open to the public.

"Contemporary Practice" explores present day art making processes in the work of fourteen artists, assembling a survey of painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics and installation. Each in a different fashion, these artists test the boundaries of context, process, and classification of contemporary art. Collectively, they are constructing a landscape of art-marking and production in this moment in art history, and a broader understanding of the momentum of contemporary art.

Participating artists include: Chris Archer, Aneta Bartos, Robert Chamberlin, Christo, Nathan Dilworth, Tim Donovan, Austin Eddy, Shaina Gates, Terrence Koh, Tyler Lafreniere, Erika Mahr, Sara Maria Salamone, Adam Stennett and Dustin Yellin

Curatorial: Painting Reassembled by Erika Mahr

Painting Reassembled 

Curated by Erika Mahr
Fine Arts Gallery, SUNY Westchester Community College, NY
February 1 - April 16, 2016

Painting Reassembled brings together the work of Katie Bell, Joseph Montgomery, and Lumin Wakoa to examine the materiality and objecthood of painting through the reassembling of objects, materials, and forms. These artists utilize the process of painting as a catalyst for the generation and regeneration of ideas and imagery. Fragments collected from a wide array of sources, including earlier works, are recycled and reconstructed to create new compositions that challenge the traditional constraints of painting through both collage and assemblage. Each piece is a record of the artist’s actions, and pose to us the possibilities of future reconstructions.
