6:30–8pm
ICI Curatorial Hub

401 Broadway, Suite 1620
FREE and open to the public


Join artists Doug Ashford and Chloë Bass for a Valentine’s Day discussion about intimacy and time.

For the past year, Chloë and Doug have been engaged in an ongoing conversation about abstraction, interpersonal relations, and human understanding as conveyed through art. For this Hub event at ICI, they’re going to play a game. Each artist has selected a series of images that the other has not seen. As the images are revealed one by one, Chloë will respond to Doug’s selections, and Doug to Chloë‘s, producing an instinctive conversation that leads to larger truths.

The event celebrates the pairing of image and language, the known and the unknown, and intergenerational friendship. Wine and chocolate will be served.

 

This event is free and open to the public. To attend, please RSVP to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with SHARED in the subject line.


This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Chloë Bass

Chloë Bass is a conceptual artist working in performance, situation, publication, and installation. Her work addresses scales of intimacy, where patterns hold and break as group sizes expand, and daily life as a site of deep research. Her current project, The Book of Everyday Instruction, is an eight-chapter investigation into one-on-one social interaction. Chloë is a 2017 - 2018 Workspace resident at the Center for Book Arts, and a 2017 studio resident at Triangle Arts Association. Her projects have appeared in recent exhibits at CUE Art Foundation, Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Project Space, The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, the James Gallery, and elsewhere. Her forthcoming book will be published by the Operating System in December 2017; her writing is most often found on Hyperallergic. She is an Assistant Professor at Queens College, CUNY.


Doug Ashford

Doug Ashford is an artist, teacher and writer based in New York. He is Associate Professor at The Cooper Union where he has taught sculpture, design, and interdisciplinary studies since 1989. Ashford’s principle visual practice from 1982 to 1996 was the multi-form practice of Group Material, whose work has been recently compiled in the book Show and Tell: A Chronicle of Group Material (Four Corners Books, 2010). Since 1996 he has continued to produce paintings, essays and collaborative projects that engage sociality with artistic form. His most recent public effort ended in the project Who Cares (Creative Time, 2006), a book built from a series of conversations between Ashford and other cultural practitioners on public expression, ethics, and beauty. Recent exhibitions of his paintings include “Abstract Possible”, Tensta Konsthall and other locations (2010-12), dOCUMENTA 13, Kassel (2012) and the Gwangju Bienialle 11(2016). A collection of essays, Doug Ashford: Writings and Conversation, (Mousse Publishing, 2013), was published on the occasion of his retrospective exhibition at the Grazer Kunstverein that year. He is represented by Wilfried Lentz Rotterdam.
