About This Event
Drawing on themes of the natural and the hybrid, Natural Fallacy is a group show curated by 229Collective in collaboration with Aether Art Projects. In philosophy, natural fallacy is the conclusion that value in terms of good and bad is based in nature. What is natural is good, therefore what is unnatural is bad. The notion of natural fallacy comes as a broken concept, the invalidity of a fallacy is integral to its meaning. This show addresses how that idea can be re-presented and complicated in contemporary composite forms and with the integration of technology. The show combines 2D, 3D, and sound works with an emphasis on mixed media. Participating artists include Frank Adams, Eames Armstrong, Tim Campbell, Christopher Cunetto, Sara Diamond, Dan Gray, Chandi Kelley, Stephanie Kwak, Marina Litvinskaya, Gabriel Mellan, Jennifer Nugent, Haniya Rae, Jordan Sanders, Najva Sol, and Gregory Vita.
