Salon: Andrea Mastrovito and Eileen Maxson
Please note: This Salon was originally scheduled for January 21, but was rescheduled due to the snowstorm.
Andrea Mastrovito will discuss the projects he is working on in his first two months at ISCP: a museum solo show in Italy, a public project in Bushwick and his studio work about the circus. All of them are characterized by a series of deep reflections about drawing and its declinations in time and space through sculpture, video and performance, where the line of drawing mingles with lines of personal and universal history.
Eileen Maxson will present a body of work in-progress that takes the 1990’s cult film Reality Bites as central inspiration. Maxson is focused on the film for its timely conflicts: personal virtue versus market society, mediation versus authenticity and commodification versus rebellion. Works presented will include video, sculpture, internet intervention and photography.
