Disturbing the Comfortable

Event Date/Time

Sep 19, 2013 to Nov 1, 2013
9:00 am until 5:00 pm

This event occurs daily, every weekday.

Description

Disturbing the Comfortable

The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents Disturbing the Comfortable in the Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery, 70 Audubon St., 2nd floor, New Haven. Curated by Hayward Gatling, this exhibition will be on display from Friday, September 20th through Friday, November 1st, 2013. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. An opening reception is scheduled for Thursday, September 19, from 5 to 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

 

The title of this show is a take on the British street artist Banksy’s quote: “Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.” The quote has inspired curator Gatling to put together this show that is meant to push the envelope.

 

“Every time there is a new art movement it disturbs the art community, but eventually gets adopted,” Gatling explained. “Sometimes change is painful, but overall usually good.”

 

He has gathered more than twenty artists to participate in the show, many of which will be contributing artwork made at his request specifically for Disturbing the Comfortable.

 

The work in Disturbing the Comfortable will range from paintings and photographs to sculptures and bone carvings. The artists included in the show range in age from 17-65 and will include; Kwadwo Adae, Vito Bonanno, Leila Crocket, Lisa Daly, Uber Dami, Chuck Dorris, Mike Franzman, Barbara Harder, Jahmane, Dooley-O Jackson, Trevor Lyon, Jim Martin, Alan Neider, Mike Ross, Liz Pagano, Damian Paglia, Carla O'Grady Payson, Uma Terri Ramiah, Heidi Richard, Bill Saunders, JodiAnn Strmiska, Katro Storm, and Jonathan Waters.
