Curated by Jeffrey Uslip, A Chromatic Loss, Installation view, Bortolami, New York, 2014

The exhibition, titled A Chromatic Loss, examines the poetics and politics of the body, technology and the shape of time in the binaries of black and white. The exhibition's restrictive palette allows the artwork's immanent criticality and material subversiveness to simultaneously cohere as a unified collective and maintain divergent subject positions. In this exhibition, established artists such as Betty Tompkins, Tom Burr, John Coplans, Donald Moffett, Nancy Grossman and Frederick Hammersley coexist alongside an emerging generation of artists, including Wyatt Kahn, Xylor Jane, Robert Zungu, Dave Hardy, Michelle Lopez and Arcangelo Sassolino, to deploy abstracted, allegorical and symbolic representations of the body within a post-historical culture.
