Brevity’s Rainbow


Brevity's Rainbow, a group show opening this Friday, 8 February, at Cinders Gallery in Brooklyn is an attempt to return a sense of intimacy to the spectacle of the art show. Curated by Maxwell Williams of Tokion, the show features over 70 artists interpreting "Lilliputian and the temporal, the specks of dust that make up the world, the fleeting moments of pleasure and pain."

The upshot is a vast collection of diminutive work, all under five inches by David Shrigley (above left), Deanne Cheuk, Keren Richter (above right), Rebecca Turbow, Gaelan Mckeown-Hickel, Assume Vivid Astro Focus, Andrew Kuo, Lansing-Dreiden, Maya Hayuk, Kime Buzzeli and Art Lodge, among others. Williams hopes to create "a galaxy of tiny art, a prismatic assemblage of little moments: this is Brevity’s Rainbow." An after-party at Sound Fix follows the show.

See additional images and flyers for the show and after party after the jump.
