• Curation of the TNC gallery space in the Lower East Side. This show was an effort to collect artists that would naturally produce work to have a cohesive and dynamic interaction together. Dealing with the basic concept of myth: at once primordial, stark, heavy, myth is also dynamic, inspiring, organic and transmutative. No single piece can encompass all aspects, and relies upon the connection of others to further compell the story.

  • From Director Peter J. Ketchum

    "...[the show collects] work reflecting themes familiar in myth and materials
    used across centuries. The mix includes primordial,
    abstract, or stark designs; figurative or embellished visions,  
    bursts of light and sudden threatening darkness.
    Similar to the many-eyed perspective of Argus the
    mythological giant with one hundred eyes, the artists depict their
    own ideas of myth and its relationship to true experience
    or invented truths, much like ancient storytellers who gave
    their own spin to the folkloric tales they told...
    the Arcadian Argus was called All-Seeing, a giant who was
    watchful and alert. Today his name is attached to a camera,
    a surveillance system , a DC comics character, a bionic
    eye, a computer game, and monitoring software. The artists
    selected share in this watchfulness, monitoring carefully
    what they see with a mere twenty-two eyes."
