About The Event
Come visit us at RCI New York and see artist Paul Joseph Vogeler in conversation with Nunu Fine Art NYC gallery director Jenny Mushkin Goldman, about Vogeler’s engagement with art history, influences, and his own artistic practice.
This special event is organized in conjunction with EXPOSED – An Artistic Dialog of Dan Voinea & Paul Joseph Vogeler, our ongoing exhibition which investigates the idea of exposure as a moment of crisis, examining one’s vulnerability in front of a viewer, whether an individual or a group.
On view at RCI New York's Brâncuși Gallery through June 23, 2023.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
The current exhibition hosted by our Brâncuși Gallery, entitled EXPOSED, builds upon a transatlantic artistic dialog between Romanian Dan Voinea and American Paul Joseph Vogeler, whose bodies of work, characterized by dynamic practices exploring the human perspective from various angles, reveal the inherently subjective and situational nature of the observed reality.
In a world of pervasive scrutiny and constant survey, defending privacy becomes an act of courage. The contemporary individual tries to escape total and permanent exposure and defend their intimacy against intrusion and "surveillance." Nevertheless, privacy is constantly invaded by public opinion and the media, which brutally penetrate the obscurity of one’s life. On the other hand, the tensioned relation between the collective/individual viewer and the subject of their scrutiny is in itself a source of contemplation (and meditation) as evidenced by the works of Dan Voinea and Paul Vogeler, artists who make this theme central to their practice.
The exhibition is made in collaboration with Slag Gallery.
