Unusual Suspects

Curated by New York based artists, Elise Tak and Marvin Pique (both originally from the Netherlands) the exhibition A New York State of Mind (Stories from the Unusual Suspects) will feature a great variety of disciplines, themes, and story angels. From paintings, drawings, collages, video art and photography to installation art, music, and interactive performances. The artists will present works that talk about gender and sexuality, beauty, self image and aging, displacement and identity, the many costs of war, how chocolate should make the journey from Earth to Mars and life in the age of Trump. On a lighter note the exhibition will include a showreel of the mockumentary-style film series THE MADNESS OF ART, a hilarious send up of the contemporary New York gallery and art scene in all of its absurdity.
