The new show Alone/Together, curated by Doc (aka Murdock Beningborough), at the new Pretentious Gallery (former Broadstreet Gallery), owned by Isa Messioptra, opens tomorrow, Sunday, June 12, 2016 at 12 PM SLT. The organizers state that this show looks at the emotional myopia that exists in our public and private relationships. The loner in a crowded room, disconnected lovers, those in grief but surrounded by friends and family, and on. No one is immune. There is no vaccination that protects for life. Like physical pain, expressing sensation from past experience is inordinately difficult. Art in any form transcends the divide and the challenge for this exhibit is to express the isolation. The artists showing their work are Edie Horngold, Kato Salyut, Hills Scofield, Goodcross, Bay Addens, daze, Sabbian Paine, Isa Messioptra, MM, and Senna Coronet. This is another intriguing theme brought forth by this gallery and it will be interesting to see what each of these talented photographers come up with. Very much looking forward to this show!
