From Benji Schulman, SCHULMAN Projects! For those of you who know Benji, you know how sharp of an eye and intellect he has. It's exciting to see his latest endeavor unfolding—I'm certain he'll be presenting thoughtful, well curated exhibitions. The first is "inception," which includes work from former UAF faculty Mandi Salov.
The press release for inception states, "The work in the exhibition creates re-understandings of the relational context between craft and art. It represents a fundamental transformation of the conventions and stereotypes that have formulated between craft and art. It subverts by undermining and undoing our preconceived notions. The most exciting art today looks to combining genres and traditions, playing with old and new forms and showing flexibility in media."
