Dave Miko and Tom Thayer: New World Pig
Curated by Matthew Lyons
This collaborative exhibition features Dave Miko’s enamel on aluminum paintings and Tom Thayer’s stop-motion animation videos. Working separately but in tandem, the artists have juxtaposed the loose, abstract vocabulary of Miko’s paintings with Thayer’s supersaturated colors and lo-fi image quality derived from his use of antiquated video technology along with current digital processes. The resulting installation tells a murky folk tale about a hunter, his dog, and the pig they are hunting amid a desolate landscape.
Exhibition Hours: Tues-Fri, 12-6 pm; Sat 11-6 pm FREE
This exhibition is made possible with support from Dedalus Foundation Inc., The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
