New Ancient: curated by Thomas Christopher Haag
June 28 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Fritz | space, an extension of contemporary art space Gallery Fritz, is pleased to announce New Ancient, a Thomas Christopher Haag curated group show including fellow artists: David Kappy, Etsy co-founder Jared Tarbell, Jodie Herrera, Joel Davis, and Joe Romero Garcia. New Ancient opens June 28, 2019, and runs through July 21, in Gallery Fritz’s upstairs mezzanine galleries.
Aesthetically combining two and three-dimensional works, constructed of reclaimed wood, found objects, fabric, and paints, Haag’s curation is intended to lift up the heritage of humanity and its subsequent adaptation while reworking the mythological elements of culture which have inhibited growth and built walls.
The artists build bridges through their willingness to explore the outliers of society and history. This serves to validate the emotional breach experienced between cultures, identities, and nations. Through the artists’ individual experiments in communication through visual art, they leave traditions behind while acknowledging the core of what it is to be human.
