COMMAND+ N Group Art Exhibition @ (SCENE) Metrospace | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Please stop into (SCENE) Metrospace to see our latest exhibition traveling to us from Bloomington, Indiana where it was recently on view at I Fell Gallery. COMMAND + N was co-curated by Anna Buckner and Sul-Jee Scully of Command Zine and Bill Bass and Raphael Cornford of Noise Project. This special exhibition brings together the work of nine artists; Roxana Azar, Israel Campos, Zachary Carlisle Davidson, Jonathan McFadden, Rowland Ricketts, Saman Sajasi, Caleb Weintraub, Tyler Wilkinson, and Chad Wys.

Curators Statement

I can’t follow everything going on. You can’t either. I can grab a few strands here and there, focusing my reading and my podcast listening and my conversations. Still, I’m falling woefully short. I know that any sources I access have bias, that I’ve been lied to by dominant narratives across media forms, that my experiences have been misrepresented if represented at all.

So let art speak to us all at once and emotively and with information and through reference and via updated, augmented, and even subverted traditions. For art does
indeed reveal our new narratives and emergent mythologies, forces that selectively continue and negate aspects of their older counterparts. “But which art?” you
might ask, “Where? How? Will there be beer?”

NOISE and COMMAND Zine co-curate the exhibition “COMMAND + N,” a traveling group show of artists whosework is invaluable, transformative and alive, acting upon us just as much as we respond in turn. Working across multiple media these artists reveal untold stories, recontexualize traditions, speak from marginalized identities, and play with the boundaries between digital and tangible.

Bringing together an expertise that spans the contemporary fields of painting, textile, printmaking, photography, comics and digital art, the curators present two exhibitions at I Fell in Bloomington, IN and (SCENE) Metrospace in East Lansing, MI, highlighting selected works as simultaneously discrete narrative objects and cohesively indicative of the story of our time.
