Galleri Urbane presents Sam Mack: "Pass" opening reception
On the heels of their MFA thesis exhibition, "good dyke art," Sam Mack presents their first solo exhibition with Galleri Urbane. Titled "Pass," the exhibition is comprised of a newly produced body of work that remains rooted in the ideas of institutional critique and its contradictions that drove Mack’s graduate studies.
In this exhibition, methods and materials of display commonly utilized by galleries and museums are installed in conjunction with hardware store materials in an attempt to highlight their visual similarities despite belonging to disparate environments with very different behavioral expectations. Mack juxtaposes these seemingly low-brow elements with iconography of the art institution to complicate the narrative of the gallery as a neutralized space.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through July 13.
