Obsess and Observe – UAR Group Show

Curator: Carolina Paz

Thursday to Saturday, 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm, excluding holidays, or by appointment.

Opening: Jun 6 (THU), from 6 to 8pm

Uncool Gallery is delighted to present “obsess and observe” curated by Carolina Paz. Join us for the opening reception on June 6, 2024, from 6 to 8 PM at our new space located at 162 Flushing Ave, 1st Floor, Brooklyn, NY.

“obsess and observe” showcases the innovative and diverse works of twenty resident artists from the Winter/Spring 2024 UA Residency Program. These artists hail from across the United States and countries such as Canada, South Korea, Hong Kong, Romania, Argentina, Brazil, Spain, and Poland. Their works navigate contrasts such as representation versus abstraction, and reality versus imagination, while exploring themes of fragments, repurposed finds, grief, intimacy, identity, and fantasy, all interwoven with their residency experiences.

The meticulous gestures and dedication of the artists are evident in their utilization of unconventional materials and experimental techniques. Through their creations, viewers can observe the profound impact of the residency on each artist’s growth and development, providing a unique reflection of their time in the program. The exhibition layout guides viewers from grounded works to suspended pieces, encouraging the exploration of the tensions between obsessive creation and objective observation within each artwork.
