WASTED Art Exhibit Closing Reception41-26 27TH ST, Queens, NY 11101
START: 6:30 PM April 5, 2013
END: 8:30 PM April 5, 2013
Join the artist behind WASTED for a special reception and see this wonderful exhibition on its closing day. Resobox Gallery proudly presents political works from Alex White Mazzarella, artist and Founder of global social art initiative Artefacting. Artwork created over three years in the distant geographies of Mumbai, Detroit, Brooklyn and Queens come together to explore WASTED as a landscape, social condition and way of life.
Featured is “A Working Class” (2013), an installation consisting of 122 plastic liquor, beverage and oil containers. Accompanying the work are 22 mixed-media paintings and a short video. Expressive paintings from 2010-11 narrate stories of development and nature urban juxtaposition through a language of collage, imagery, through the intensity of color and velocity of paint and pastel.
2011 works from Mumbai utilize photo transfer and emulsion to depict imagery like oil drums as loot. Barrels as shadow populations are surveyed behind bars and Detroiters are combined with abandoned rubber tires. In a 2011 performance video a Computer Man is the story of electronics once their owners deem them obsolete.
What is wasted? What is not wasted? What can’t be wasted? Why do we get wasted?
Free Admission. Everyone is invited.
