DATA SPELL curated by Bianca Boragi & Jamie Martinez
Opening reception Friday July 6th from 6-9pm until July 29th
The Border Space Project, 56 Bogart Street 1st FL BK, NY 11206

Data Spell features the work of artists born into an ahistorical era in which time is received in cut digital micro slices, allowing spells cast through performance or technology to resolve or ameliorate issues of memory, history, migration, and identity. Like something being unpacked; the real in the illusion disrupting reality.

A group exhibition featuring artworks across mediums by Carlos Franco @francocnarf , Tatiana Istomina @t.istomina , Raza Kazmi @razakazmi , Ilana Savdie @ilana_savdie and Masha Vlasova @__miss__mash__ .

Young American by Marie Tomanova

The Feeling is Mutual at Local Project
July 13 – July 27
Local Project Art Space 11-27th 44th Rd, Long Island City, NY 11101

The Feeling is Mutual is an ongoing group exhibition that examines the concept of family values through photography-based media. Each artist photographs within his or her own family, be they biological or chosen. There is an emotional investment in portraying the subject because of their intimate relationship. The result of this investment shows in the mutual affinity one can sense and see in the work. more info at www.thefeelingismutual.us
