World Class Boxing is pleased to announce Drawn and Quartered an exhibition curated by Gean Moreno. Over one hundred works culled from the collection of Dennis and Debra Scholl, hung salon-style, from the floor to the rafters, they are arranged to propose four dominant lines in the collection: architectural structures whose modernity is inseparable from their desolation; fantasy architectures; figures trapped by the codes of a pop imagination; and figures in poses that oscillate between vulnerability and defiance. Brought together, the ensemble of images becomes a constellation of points of narrative suspension, a rambling essay on deferral. Drawn and Quartered marks the trajectory of a collection as much as it attests, in its ambivalent excess, to the way uncertainty is increasingly becoming the dominant mood of our moment.Â
Gean Moreno is a Miami-based curator, artist and writer. He has recently been exhibited at the North Miami MoCA, Kunsthaus Palais Thum and Taxis in Bregenz, Miami Art Museum, Haifa Museum in Israel, Arndt & Partner in Zürich, and Invisible-Exports in New York. He has contributed texts to various magazines and catalogues. In 2008, he founded [NAME] Publications, a platform for book-based projects.
The exhibition opens December 1, 2010 and will be open 10am-4pm December 1-4, during Art Basel Miami Beach.
