Site Matters: Brooklyn Represents...

This looks like an interesting show that's presented by the Brooklyn Arts Council. The opening reception is Friday, September 28th from 6PM to 8Pm. Unfortunately I'll be out of town, but for those of you who will be in town, definitely check it out. Iviva Olenick is one of the artists participating. I was in a residency with her a few summers back and became familiar with her work there. She has utilized what would be formerly considered solely feminine handicraft and used it as a powerful vehicle that explores the relation of the identity of self, to that of heritage and possessions. Her works burn with a quiet intensity, like the pages of a private journal splayed wide - beckoning a voyeuristic investigation of the very soul of nostalgia.
