UNKRAUT
1pm @ Zhou B Center 2nd Floor • 1029 W. 35th St.

A presentation of nine positions of German contemporary art embedded in the contradictory context of reality, image and abstractor.

The show contains a selection out of current works by Sonia Jimenez Alvarez, Sabrina Jung, Anne Lass, Sven Lison, Patricia Neligan, Almut von Pusch, Theresa Rauter, Heiko Rintelen and Nicolas Wollnik. The exhibiting artists have studied in Essen, Germany, deriving from the field of documentary photography.

In the works shown, the picturing moment of photography is secondary, the collective originator for the artists and their focus of interest is the autonomous image. In this process they clearly distinguish themselves from the field of narrative photography but still their images resemble documents of the visual particularities of our time and culture

Opens Thursday Apr. 26th - Sun. May 6th

Gallery hours Thursday and Friday 1-5pm Saturday and Sunday noon to 6pm. Visits upon request.

Artist Reception is Saturday Apr. 28th 7:00 - 9:30pm
