Imminent Disaster- On the River: Stories from the heart of glorious abandon, where you cannot see what lies beyond the next bend
Opening Night Reception: Thursday, January 12, 7–9pm
30 Grand Street, Ground Floor, NYC.

On the River… is an intimate portrait of contemporary life during the great recession, as seen through a lens of antiquity, that propels the viewer into a future in which the politics of Occupy Wall Street are but a distant memory. On the River… is also a story about the river as muse, as inspiration for abandoning careful planning to spontaneous action. As the artist explains, “by allowing the river’s current to take me along without knowing where it might lead, I covered 15,000 miles of travel across the United States in 2011, taking portraits with a wet plate collodion camera and building a fleet of floating sculptures with the Miss Rockaway Armada in Philadelphia. On the River… attempts to span the distance between maker and object, object and audience – the way the river connects two shores.”

Front Gallery Installation with Armsrock

Refuge is the forced necessity of societies in collapse.
It begins with people in motion, moving away from circumstances that are barren or perilous, that are unable to sustain their life or are actively seeking to end it.

Refuge carries with it the transience of being in between one home and another; it is a liminal space, its structures are built to be packed away with ease; it momentarily rebuilds community while acknowledging the fragility of its permanence.

This idea of Refuge grounded in the local presence of Tent Cities in Southern California will be the basis of the upcoming collaborative installation between Armsrock and Imminent Disaster.
