Chaos / Control Art Exhibition

MW Projects is pleased to present Chaos/Control, a group exhibition featuring the works of Reut AsiminiCharlotte BecketChristopher BeckmanAlva CalyMayorGraciela CasselAmie CunatJeremy HaikRoxanne JacksonAmbre KellyAaron KrachAlison KudlowOtto MiloJonathan Rider, Ross SonnenbergChristopher StoutBrett Swenson and Jenny Wong-Stanley. The exhibition will be on view from July 26 through August 26.

Through painting, sculpture, photography, performance and video, the 17 artists in the exhibition explore the duality of chaos and control, and how we occupy the space in-between. As we navigate our daily lives, isn’t it the unplanned moments that often bring the greatest joys? And do we actually gain control by letting go? Each work examines these questions in the creative process – revealing how artists alternate between chaos and control, and when an artwork takes on a life of its own.

MW Projects and Doing/Living Marketplace are excited to bring art back to 218 West 57th Street through this exhibition and related programming. This landmarked 1897 French Gothic building was home to Lee's Art Shop for over 60 years, and has been vacant since May 2016 after Lee’s heirs sold the building to Thor Equities and General Growth Properties. Doing/Living Marketplace will officially launch in September 2017 as a vertical marketplace synthesizing retail and culture in one 35,000 square foot building.
