Emerson Dorsch exhibits I See The Spotlight In You

Fri Jul 27, 2018 - Sat Aug 25, 2018

I See The Spotlight In You: a group exhibition featuring work in various mediums by Miami-based artists and musicians, a blending of painting and performance. I See The Spotlight In You will include work by Kyle Barnette, Chad Barry, David Brieske, Chris Byrd, Robert Chambers, David Quinn Kudsma, Timothy Phillips, Mette Tommerup, and Janese Weingarten. Curated by Clifton Childree.

“ Theoretically produced and consumed in isolation, painting is the natural art for a culture hooked on individualism and commercialism. Yet there’s obviously an inherent social aspect to art. Artists communicate with an audience of viewers through their work, but it gets repressed when we fetishize the solitary crafting and appreciation of objects.

It feels like an artist is rebelling when they are interacting with the audience, because that experience resists commodification. Art that insists on social engagement makes us uncomfortable in the de-socialized era of the personal screen. So we’ve returned, through live performance, watching film in an audience, or creating and experiencing installations, to a shared social experience.
