Overlook, an exhibition of the works of Allan Wexler, faculty member at the School of Design Strategies, is currently on view at the Ronald Feldman Gallery in SoHo. The exhibition, which runs until October 24, features a series of pieces based on transformations of the ordinary chair, which serve as a metaphor for human interaction.
Wexler’s handcrafted drawings, multimedia objects, and images, and installations alter perceptions of eating, sitting, and socializing. Influenced by architecture and methods of scientific research, his works reveal human domestic needs and the role that objects play in our interaction with one another, as well as art’s place and purpose.
The exhibition will also feature information about Wexler’s other recent public project, which opened this fall in the new Atlantic Terminal at Flatbush and Atlantic Avenues. The project was commissioned by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority Arts for Transit for the Long Island Rail Road and produced in collaboration with Ellen Wexler.
The Ronald Feldman Gallery is located at 31 Mercer Street, New York. For more information, including hours of operation, please visit www.feldmangallery.com .
