D’Amelio Terras, NYC 6.30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Join ICI on Wednesday, April 27th, at DAmelio Terras in Chelsea for a sneak peek of Matt Keegans third solo exhibition at the gallery. Find out first-hand why so many people are talking about this young conceptualists new approach to art making. The seemingly oxymoronic notion of ‘connective interruptions’ provides a useful way to consider the work of Matt Keegan, whose various incarnations as artist, editor and curator exemplify an idea of expansive practice so prevalent in recent art. His exhibitions, participatory publications and curatorial projects explore ideas of community without idealism, interrogating both literally and metaphorically how social spaces are staged and described, and where absence, incision and removal can more powerfully frame identity than emphatic presence. SHAMIM M. MOMIN, Future Greats, ArtReview. March 2008. Matt Keegan is currently preparing for two solo exhibitions in 2011, at D’Amelio Terras in New York, and at Altman Siegel Gallery in San Francisco. You can see Keegans work in the exhibition “Image Transfer”, presented in partnership with Independent Curators International (ICI), New York, and which just debuted at the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle, Washington.
