Always The Young Strangers

Higher Pictures presents Always the Young Strangers, an exhibition of 17 young artists. The exhibition is modeled after and takes its name from a show curated by Edward Steichen at the Museum of Modern Art in 1953. The work in our show is cohesive, chaotic and expansive. The artists are highly tuned-in, producing work that vaporizes the traditional 20th century approach to medium and style. For the artist today, these have entered the hyper-real – they leave us only with references to medium and style. Aided by technologies beyond the camera, their art discloses a hybridized world made by hand. Collectively this work feels and speaks of individuality and possibility.

Erica Allen, Cortney Andrews, Talia Chetrit, Jessica Eaton, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Anna Krachey, Jessica Labatte, Andrea Longacre-White, Aspen Mays, MPA + Katherine Hubbard, Yamini Nayar, Emily Roysdon, Carrie Schneider, Kate Steciw, Letha Wilson, Ann Woo.
