SlashTHREE, the collective proudly unveils its seventeenth exhibition, an exhibition in which the artists were asked to reflect on some of the literature that inspires them in their daily lives. Each piece in “Quote Unquote” is based on a quote – famous, cultural, or even from the artist’s own life – and is created to represent that quote and its meaning to the artist. The result is a library of 60 of the collective’s finest and most personally meaningful works to date.
Since New Era’s release three months ago, the reception the slashTHREE staff and artists have received for this project has been mind-blowing. It was on show at OFFF 2011, as well as SIGGRAPH 2011 and on their very own online shop.
Striving to produce an exhibition that focused on art outside of norm, the collective selected ‘Quote Unquote’ as the theme for its seventeenth exhibition. Each piece in “Quote Unquote” is based on a quote – famous, cultural, or even from the artist’s own life – and is created to represent that quote and its meaning to the artist. The result was an exhibition that saw many styles of literature interpreted in a new light by their artist core. The efforts of Edmar Cisneros, Rob Shields, Nicolas Baroille, and Anthony Giacomino shone through as highlights in this exhibition, while the work of one of the latest additions to the collective, Tarin Yuangtrakul, will go down as some of the strongest in the history of slashTHREE.
There is a number of amazing things coming from SlashTHREE in the second half of 2011, so keep an eye on their home page, as well as our Facebook and Twitter accounts for announcements and updates! For now though, please feast your eyes on Exhibition 17: “Quote Unquote”.
