It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Doin things I used to do
They think are new
I sit and watch
As tears go by


As Tears Goes By - The Rolling Stones

cadet capela is pleased to present a group exhibition in our Rue Chapon space, curated by Ernesto Burgos, titled Evening of the Day.

 

This exhibition of eight artists: Saif Azzuz, Chelsea Culprit, Brian DeGraw, Brittni Ann Harvey, Erin O'Keefe, Eddie Martinez, Sarah Peters and Derek Weisberg showcases work that in some way engages with the triumphs and fallacies of the modern project. As the lines in the verse above state, "Doin' things I used to do/ They think are new," artists are filled with enthusiasm and excitement that belong to those who feel they are in the process of original invention, like children at play. Yet, as time goes by, we realize that this feeling of newness will be discovered and reclaimed by the next generation.
Examining this framework, images and motifs from the past become replete with additional meaning, celebrating the movement and repetition in many of the works which speak to this cyclical framework and create a vibrancy and mode of activity that is in communication between the various artworks.

cadet capela a le plaisir de présenter une exposition collective dans son espace de la rue Chapon, sous le commissariat d'Ernesto Burgos, intitulée Evening of the Day .

Cette exposition de huit artistes : Saif Azzuz, Chelsea Culprit, Brian DeGraw, Brittni Ann Harvey, Erin O'Keefe, Eddie Martinez, Sarah Peters et Derek Weisberg, présente des œuvres qui, d'une manière ou d'une autre, s'intéressent aux triomphes et aux échecs du projet moderne. Comme l'indiquent les vers du couplet ci-dessus, "Doin' things I used to do/ They think are new", les artistes sont remplis de l'enthousiasme et de l'excitation propres à ceux qui se sentent dans le processus d'une invention originale, comme des enfants en train de jouer. Pourtant, au fil du temps, on se rend compte que ce sentiment de nouveauté sera découvert et réapproprié par la génération suivante.
En examinant ce cadre, les images et les motifs du passé se chargent d'une signification supplémentaire, célébrant le mouvement et la répétition dans de nombreuses œuvres qui parlent de ce système cyclique et créent un dynamisme et un mode d'activité qui est en communication entre les différentes œuvres d'art.
