BRINK v1 is the first in a series of exhibitions dedicated to emerging art in the Northeast and organized around a theme or subject determined by the invited exhibition curator. In BRINK v1, curator Lexi Lee Sullivan brings together four artists and one artists’ collaborative to explore ideas of itinerancy in contemporary photographic practices. Featured artists are Cole Caswell, Nelson Chan, Georgie Friedman, Houseboat Press and Scott Patrick Wiener.
In Cole Caswell’s western expanses, Nelson Chan’s familial portraits, Georgie Friedman’s aerial abstractions, Houseboat Press’s travelogues and Scott Patrick Wiener’s mediated landscapes, travel is used as both process and subject. These photographers build on the rich artistic lineages of travel, documentary and street photography, and show the influence of inspired peripatetics from Walt Whitman to the Beat poets, in prints that seem similarly unrooted.
