NEW YORK, NY.- Benrimon Contemporary presents its first annual Younger than Moses group show, a collection of artistic explorations featuring 22 contemporary artists younger than 120 years old, the age at which Moses died. Curated by TS+ Projects, Younger than Moses: Idle Worship consists of contemporary painting, sculpture, performance, film, photography, and collage. The combination of artistic facets creates a dynamic gallery space, where the viewer is encouraged to interact with each work.

Today when a burning bush would cause nothing more than a traffic jam, one must wonder, “What do we worship?”

The works in Younger than Moses provide the viewer with an artistic investigation into our society’s undefined ideology of “worship.” They document our contemporary opinions through visual and philosophical discourse concerning: Youthful Surrealism, Social Networking, Social Aesthetics, Celebrity & Sexuality. Jerry Blackman engages the viewer with large sculptural kisses, made of wood and mirror, and invites the viewer into a preconceived intimate moment. Isabelle Garbani paints subway scenes with bits of starch-treated plastic bags, documenting everyday urban isolation and ecological concerns. Dressed as an athlete and rapidly humping a football, James Woodward explores the jock icon while exploring his own sexuality.

Younger than Moses: Idle Worship is a documentary revealing our society during a time when there is no “Moses” preparing stone commandments. Idle Worship tells the story of our generation adjusting to technology and a matrix of confusing ideologies through the medium of art. To whom or to what do we ascribe when “it” isn’t discernibly written in stone? Assuming the descriptivist definition of “art:” we are what we art; we are the art that we make; we are those who we project to be, we are that over which we obsess.
