To check out @Seventh Gallery

CURTIN

I dropped by Seventh Gallery yesterday to check out the new exhibition ‘Curtin’. There 10 emerging artists featured in the show. The common thread is contemporary culture. I spoke with one of the curators, Johann Rashid, whose project is displayed in the room at the far back. Rashid used a 8mm-film still which he scanned and printed. The final print has a green hue reminiscing of old found photos. It’s probably my favorite piece in the show. Rashid put together a book linked to this show of the same title. It documents the history behind the Curtin House through the eyes of 8 artists who are also currently exhibiting at Seventh Gallery. The show runs until May 14th 2011.
