works with furniture, text, and various common objects to underscore the poetic in everyday life. Witkin collects, arranges and organizes things - skills pulled directly from his day job as a gallery director and curator - to further blur the boundaries between art and life, all the while underscoring the arbitrariness of any attempt to categorize the world.
For PLATFORM 11, Witkin will create an installation in response to deCordova's fourth-floor Foster Galleries - a small cluster of spaces that were once part of the summer home of the Museum's namesake and founder Julian de Cordova.
PLATFORM is a series of solo exhibitions by early- and mid-career artists from both the New England and national arts communities. These shows focus on work that engages with deCordova's unique spaces, both indoors and outdoors, and social, geographical, and physical location. The PLATFORM series is intended as a support for creativity and expression of new ideas, and as a catalyst for dialogue about contemporary art.
