The Come Down: Portraits & Sobering Truths
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | The Come Down: Portraits & Sobering Truths is a group show based around ideas of introspection and observation in the form of epiphanies. The selected artists will contribute literal interpretations of this theme but also share works challenging conventional ideas associated with portraiture and truth. This exhibition will be an unveiling of vulnerable revelations of today's economic, environmental, consumer and cultural climate.
The Come Down is the third annual group pop up show presented by Slow Burn NYC, featuring 40 up and coming local and international artists. This body of work ranges from more traditional mediums to multidisciplinary installation, spanning topics of addiction, heritage and climate change. The event is free and will include a cash bar, works for sale, aura reading and tattooing.
Julia Sub '15 and Michelle Le Nguyen '15 work as a curatorial artist duo under the name Slow Burn NYC curating annual pop up art events each September to promote up and coming young artists in NYC. Their next group exhibition features works from Bennington alumni, including but not limited to, Ellen Hanson ’14, Jordan Jacobs ’18, Nicole Pollina ’14, Lily Primamore ’14, and Kate Davis ’14.
