LA JOLLA, CA.- Quint Contemporary Art
presents Double Up Double Up, which opened on Friday, June 11 and runs thru July 3, 2010. The gallery is excited to include three artists new to the gallery Tavares Strachan, Eve Sussman & The Rufus Corporation, and Haim Steinbach. The exhibition also features works by Mel Bochner and Roy McMakin.
To recall what one has seen is to pull from memory, either consciously or subconsciously. One of the more basic fundamental devices of committing something to memory is repetition. In Double Up Double Up the viewer is invited to explore this principle of memory through works that deal with some form of repetition. The eclectic group of artists in this exhibition examine repetition in unique ways with the use of parallel universes (Stachan), word repetition (Bochner), framing devices (Steinbach), ontological complexities (McMakin), and memory and longing (Sussman). These forms of repetition reveal themselves in double images, duplication, and pairings.
This will be the gallery's last exhibition at their current space. The gallery will be re-opening in a larger location this fall. Mark Quint is excited about this move and is especially excited about the first exhibition, which will be a show of new paintings by artist Kim MacConnel. This will be Kim's eight exhibition with Quint Contemporary Art and will coincide with his October 2010 retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego.
