“Response” by Culture Laboratory

“RESPONSE” by Culture Laboratory in collaboration with Ben Lewis
Brazos Gallery, Richland College, Dallas, TX
February 03 – March 03, 2011

Closing Reception, March 03, 2011

Ben Lewis, of “Art Safari,” London, has offered a statement to the members of Culture Laboratory Collective: Nowadays we must distinguish between the deeply superficial and the superficially superficial. In “Response” the artists have each taken a word from the statement and developed art, interpreting and elaborating on their piece of the sentence. Richland College’s Brazos Gallery hosts the exhibition from February 3 through March 3, 2011. A closing reception will be held on Thursday, March 3 from 4-7 PM.

Ben Lewis

Ben Lewis is an award winning film maker, writer and director. His BBC series, “Art Safari”, offers witty investigations and interviews with contemporary artists and dealers which provide a glimpse into the complex, and baffling, world of contemporary art. In “Response” Lewis offers a paradoxical statement, embraced and dissected by a group of twelve contemporary artists.

The exhibition pinpoints the individuality of the participating artists and their localized attempts to remain part of the larger group discussion, while inversely opening the artist community to influence from an outside source.  The exhibit allows multiple interpretations and relational aesthetics, favoring the complexity of individuation and community vitality over homogenization.

Culture Laboratory Collective comprises a diverse group of 12 American artists working loosely around the question of social cohesion within the context of aesthetic fragmentation. The members, scattered across the nation, have developed an online community, exchanging ideas as an ongoing investigation in media interchangeability and communal dissonance.
