Artist's Talk, This Saturday



Please come, dear readers!

Not conceptual No: the inner and outer languages of text-based art

In this presentation, Molly Stevens will survey how text has been used in art as a declarative, psychological and a visual form of communication. She’ll discuss the likes of Jenny Holzer, Matt Mullican, Jean-Luc Godard
as well as her own work in video, drawing and signage.

Slag Gallery
548 West 28th Street, 2nd fl.
(Between 10th and 11th Ave.)

January 31, 5pm

Slag Gallery is pleased to announce bimonthly gallery events.

Slag Gallery, since its opening in summer 2008, has focused on presenting contemporary works by emerging Eastern European artists who have minimal exposure in the United States. This year, in addition to that focus, the gallery will begin featuring works by international artists in all media.

And standing behind of our commitment to function as an experimental artists’ space, we are happy to announce bimonthly gallery events where artists, curators and other cultural producers will present, share their ideas and works, including film, video and live performance. Especially in a time that many galleries are closing and arts funding are being severely cut or eliminated, Slag believes that the significance of these events will create new dialogs and give an informative platform for everyone involved—from presenter to audience.

The events will be curated by Özkan Cangüven, Assistant Director at Slag Gallery
