Mirage Show, an exhibition of contemporary collage curated by Geoff Kim, opens on Friday, April 13th from 6:00 – 10:30 pm at Brooklyn Fire Proof. Included in the nine person show is Parsons Illustration Program graduate Lulu Wolf (2010) and former faculty member James Gallagher.
“The Mirage Show features work from an impressive roster of internationally recognized artists, many of whom call on their expertise in an array of digital mediums to inform their works on paper. Drawing on an expansive selection of cross-media imagery from both vintage and hyper-contemporary sources, participating artists build upon and destabilize the history of collage to recreate a medium in concert with the Internet Age. The Mirage Show, by including both art-world approved veterans and some of our favorite young talent, showcases the very best of a community of artists working in the rapidly changing medium. The opening party will feature luminescent projections via the Gowanus-based JohnWhitlock, sets from Comadrome and Cluster DJs Catdog, as well as Mario Zoots of the throbbing, ghostly, globe-spanning remote collaborative Modern Witch.” Brooklyn Fire Proof, 119 Ingraham St, Brooklyn, NY
