One of our very own founders of Field Projects, Jacob Rhodes, is currently in the show Strange Bedfellows, curated by Blair Murphy and organized by the Washington Project for the Arts. This is a group exhibition, which features artists whose work represents intimacy in many different and unusual ways. “Strange Bedfellows will explore the way proximity to others–whether physical, emotional or intellectual—shapes our individual identities, civic life, technological development, and physical spaces.”
The show will take place from October 17 – November 23, 2014. It is located at the Kaplan Gallery, VisArts at Rockville 155 Gibbs Street Rockville, MD 20850.
Abstractions and Its Discontents, curated and directed by artist Deborah Brown, is going to take place from October 23-November 23, 2014, at the Storefront Ten Eyck Gallery, located in the thriving art community of East Williamsburg/Bushwick. Deborah Brown curated Field Projects’ last open call exhibition, ‘Momento Mori.’ She features many artists in this show whom she found through our open call, including Maureen Meyer and Brian Guidry (shown above). The show contains pieces from several emerging and mid-career artists.
French Paradox: From October 23-October 26, 2014, there will be also be an international exposition of artworks and art galleries in and around Bushwick called Exchange Rates. The Storefront Ten Eyck Gallery will be hosting La Couleuvre, a Paris based gallery, featuring the work of artists Katerina Christidi, Frederique Licuien, Philippe Richard, and Christophe Robe.
Be sure to stop by and if you can, take advantage of the awesome opportunity to walk around the Bushwick art community during the Exchange Rates exposition.

Music can imply the infinite if enough things depart from the norm far enough. Strange “abnormal” events can lead to the feeling that anything can happen, and you have a music with no boundaries. - Morton Feldman, American composer.
Blue Fender by Tom Kotik takes us to it’s bare, raw place. It’s empty and melancholic, hopeful and lonely, quiet and pulsing at once. The absence of the amp asks what else is absent in our lives?
We search for new forms to establish relationships with ourselves and the city that surrounds us. Becoming hyper-aware of the power an object can have in our lives and it’s impact when absent.
Realizing the weight of it’s memory may be more precious in the end.

"But sometimes one has the sense of a paradoxically asynchronous contemporaneity—the strange tug of more than one time and place." - Raqs Media Collective
"Landscape everywhere in the world is a construct of human beings- whether through human ascription to it of mythological creation, or through physical actions by the humans themselves.. Whatever the difficulties of recognizing such special sites from the archaeological record- all societies in the past would have recognized, as do all societies in the present, some features of their landscapes (if not all of the earth) as special.” -Peter Ucko, Archaeologist
Amy Pryor’s suggested constructive landscapes confront us with what is superficial. They remind us not to trust the surface, acknowledging the layers slowly making their way to the top. Often we encounter what seems to be an apparently beautiful and meaningful relationship only to pull back the layers and discover the dark and ugly truth. It hurts and every time, it gets just a little more shocking until we are forced to become numb. Everyone and everything has the potential to harm.
We leave it the blissful, naively innocent to keep the world hopeful. Amy’s work asks us if we are the best person we can be- to ourselves, each other and the landscape that we all share for daily survival.
