Passage looks towards the transitional state of being neither here nor there when examining one’s sense of self in the world. Through the use of drawing, painting, illustration, sculpture, and video, Passage emphasizes the change of status for the individual, whether genuine or perceived, as a result of conquest, crisis, or ritual and how these historical and social underpinnings are shaping contemporary society.

Featured Artists: Maggie Covert, Eamon Espey, Phillip Estlund, Megan Hildebrandt, Matthew McConville, and Richard Roussell, and Justin Storms.

It’s Not Easy

July 24th - August 29th, 2008

It’s Not Easy is an exhibition inspired by the recent tidal wave of efforts to go “green”. As new buildings seek LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, as major corporations seek to “green” their practices, and as global warming puts the need to be green at the forefront, we are virtually inundated with social pressures to be environmentally sustainable. But how is the word ‘green’ really interpreted?

It’s Not Easy will be the second exhibition of SEA (Social Environmental Aesthetics) , a major new exhibition program and archive initiative in Exit Underground that presents social and environmental issues and the way artists respond to them.

Opening, July 24th at 7 pm

Art Fag City review

by Paddy Johnson


“Easily missed in the back corner of the second residency space, I almost made the mistake of snobbishly dismissing the work due to the artist’s use of National Geographic magazines as source material.  Thankfully my distaste for that magazine doesn’t run so deep that I can’t identify a good drawing when I see it.  Carefully rendered, the delicate work is very much in keeping with the demands and feelings evoked by post-apocolyptic terrain itself; its personal touch matching the kind of environment you’d expect in one without the cold mechanical forms populating urban landscapes.  Ultimately more important than a degree of formal success the drawings simply present a very inventive narrative.  For this reason storms is definately an artist to watch.”

Day Job

The Drawing Center NYC

Curated by: Nina Katchadourian

Day Job will feature works commissioned through an open call to artists currently in The Drawing Center’s Viewing Program. Rather than subscribing to the idea that non-artistic work is by definition disruptive to an artist’s practice, Day Job looks at the ways in which the information, skills, ideas, working conditions, or materials encountered in the work world can become a source of

influence. The exhibition also addresses the ways in which contemporary artists support themselves in an economic climate that often demands particularly diverse and flexible solutions to staying afloat. Part of the Selections series, this exhibition is curated by Viewing Program Curator Nina Katchadourian.

December 10th - February 3rd, 2011

Opening:  December 9th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Graphite on Paper

School 33

Baltimore, MD

A group exhibition of artists who employ graphite on paper in their practice, this exhibit will be a celebration of drawing. Since this show is using Graphite on Paper as it’s thematic current, preliminary drawings, sketchbooks, doodles as well as refined and “finished” works will be included. Matted and framed work under glass will hang beside sculptural work, video pieces and drawings that are thumb tacked to the walls. Graphite and paper are merely the starting point. The goal is an exhibit that has a wide breadth of approaches to the materials…humble materials that everyone has a basic understanding of, but materials that hold infinite possibilities.
