Pattern Recognition Curated by Dexter Wimberly
July 18 – October 6, 2013
Opening Reception: July 18, 2013 |7-10PM
Pattern Recognition presents the recent work of five emerging artists – Rushern Baker IV, Kimberly Becoat, Hugo McCloud, Duhirwe Rushemeza and Sam Vernon – whose practices are largely engaged in abstract painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture. These artists use the freedom of abstraction to push aesthetic boundaries and to present concepts that range from the personal to the geo-political.
There are several conceptual parallels amongst the exhibiting artists’ processes, including the use of found materials and their multidisciplinary studio practices. The exhibition’s central theme involves the examination of the natural human desire to find patterns or meaning in the data that surrounds us. Other themes include methods of interpreting history, consumerism, and the tension between art and commercialization.
The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) uses the visual arts as a point of departure for exploring new artistic production across a variety of disciplines. Through exhibitions and programming, MoCADA incites dialogue on pressing social and political issues facing the African Diaspora, and fosters a dynamic space for the creation and continuous evolution of culture.
