ART BARGE AND CRUSH CURATORIAL “PLACE OF HEAVEN” PART 1

THE ART BARGE AND CRUSH CURATORIAL ARE PLEASED TO PRESENT “ PLACE OF HEAVEN” PART 1 OPENING JUNE 30 – JULY 22

CURATED BY KAREN HESSE FLATOW

WORK BY JONAH KING, HANNAH LEVY, AND SARA STERN
The Victor D’Amico Institute of Art is honored to host Part 1 of PLACE OF HEAVEN in The Art Barge gallery. The exhibition will open on June 30, taking place at both CRUSH CURATORIAL and the Art Barge. The exhibits will include works by CRUSH CURATORIAL’S resident artists, Jonah King, Hannah Levy, and Sara Stern which the artists selected after visiting Napeague Harbor and the archives of the Art Barge. Place of Heaven (Kearsage) was the name Victor D’Amico originally gave to the WWI Barge he transported to Napeague to start an educational program as an extension of his work at The Museum of Modern Art. This marks an exciting collaboration between CRUSH CURATORIAL and The Art Barge.

Jonah King, Hannah Levy, and Sara Stern work in a diverse range of practices: sculpture, drawing, performance and moving image. Jonah King’s video installations explore the power of digital media over our relationship to the land. By invoking speculative narratives of utopias and apocalyptic dreams, King questions what it means to be human in an increasingly digital ecology. Hannah Levy’s work exists in a kind of design purgatory. The design strategies of impossibly sensual curved and leaning structures are pushed to a point of humor. Sara Stern investigates the seams between public and private spaces, people and buildings, users and systems, representations and actualities. Her work incorporates fiction, role play and role reversal.
