Mixed Greens revisits the reductive aspects of modernism and explores its impact on contemporary artists
Installation view at Mixed Greens.
NEW YORK, NY.- Mixed Greens presents Color Shift, curated by Jordan Tate. This exciting group exhibition revisits the reductive aspects of modernism and explores its impact on contemporary artists. Through commissioned investigations into the resurgence of modernist/minimalist aesthetics, Color Shift is a refresh (v2.0) of the modernist approach to medium, material, and color. The seven participating artists address the resurgence of this inquiry and intentionally bring it to the foreground, while critically investigating its lineage, context, aesthetic, and contemporary function.

Color Shift acknowledges reframed investigations of color as a fundamental component to art making, as well as the transience of color as it moves across platforms and devices. This dialogue is particularly relevant given the migratory nature of our image consumption and aims to acknowledge both a fundamental difference in our understanding of color, and our persistent/historical relationship to it.

Each artist has been asked to address, in some fashion, these ideas of a (reductive) new Modernist inquiry as it relates to his or her practice, and more broadly how the influence of canonical artists (Ellsworth Kelley, Yves Klein, Robert Irwin, Ay-O, Barnett Newman) is manifest in the expanded field of contemporary work. The exhibiting artists have chosen to approach this work through a variety of media ranging from installation-based works and paintings to video games and photographs.

In many ways, this exhibition aims to address the increasingly complex visual field by following a multitude of strategies laid out by the doyens of modernism. The apparent simplicity of these works echoes the rich capability inherent in a sincere and pointed investigation of new materials, aesthetics, history, and the contemporary milieu.

Artists: Arabella Campbell, Wyatt Niehaus, Zachary Dean Norman, Rick Silva, Kate Steciw, Sherwin Rivera Tibayan and Alex Walp
