BLACK & WHITE GALLERY is pleased to present A BLACK AND WHITE WORLD – short summer group exhibition featuring a range of works with absence of color as the common denominator.
The exhibition title is borrowed from Adam White’s 2005 Australian short film about the possibilities of change. It's the story of a character in a black and white silent film, who transcends the medium and in doing so changes with it, breaks free and goes beyond its limitations.
A BLACK AND WHITE WORLD is a creative collaboration with YUME INTERNATIONAL located in Brooklyn, NY.
On July 16th YUME INTERNATIONAL presented LIGHT & DARK - a free form live performance by the NY–based, urban- inspired artists PESU and FERNANDO MORA. Working with black paint, ink and markers on a white 8 x 8 ft wall panel installed inside the gallery, each artist rendered his personal approach to the battle between negative and positive spaces. The finished pieces will remain on view as part of the exhibition.
