Flavorpill invited independent curators to submit exhibition proposals to be considered for a month-long exhibition at IDIO Gallery, to open in conjunction with Bushwick Open Studios 2015. All proposals were reviewed individually by a panel of judges and evaluated based on “conceptual rigor”, “curatorial execution”, “aesthetic success”, “feasibility”, “timeliness”, and “overall impact level”. The winning exhibition entitled “Circumstantial Evidence,” was curated by Jack Henry.
This show pairs the artwork of John Crowe and Oliver Jones, two underrepresented multidisciplinary artists that have been a part of the Bushwick community for several years. Their work explores moments of cultural amnesia, revisionist history and technology’s function in the semantics of discovery. The exhibition will feature a selection of video projections, installations, sculptures and prints that compare each artist’s process of
repurposing narrative to create new forms.
