Slow Burn is an exhibition of graphic or printed matter and industrial information production. Newspapers, magazines, posters, signs, screen-printing and commercial/news photography are some of the techniques employed by the artists in the show. Rather than a thematic or overarching philosophical connection, the material or technical condition of the work dictates the through-line of the exhibition.
Via the trajectories of art movements and ideas such as Pop Art and Appropriation, the mediums and methodologies of mass production are now a common language in contemporary art. My intention is to present a collection of works that seem fluid and rhizomatic. In other words, the intention is to look at the graphic as a vast condition of industrial civilization. This allows for a multiplicity of manifestations and interpretations from artists.
