The 4rd Quadrennial: The Ballot Show
Opening: Friday Oct 14th 7-9 
October 14th-23th, 2016 
Fri-Sun 1-6 & by appointment

The Front Room Gallery is proud to present the Fourth quadrennial "Ballot Show", which focuses on the American electoral system, and the overall notion of voting with a ballot. "The Ballot Show," held every 4 years since 2004, is inspired by the American election, and contemplates our antiquated electoral-college voting process.

The impetus for the first “Ballot Show” was disillusionment with the shoddy way the 2000 election had been handled—hanging chads, votes not counted, people not allowed into the polls, the Supreme Court decision. Many artist’s works in the following two versions of the exhibition (in 2008 and in 2012) dealt with the archaic nature of our electoral process, but also with the feeling that we as a people aren’t happy with the choices that we are offered. This year we are faced with an election with the two least popular candidates ever, and it seems both side’s votes are driven by hatred of the other sides contender. This election is a turbocharged reality show fueled by accusations and innuendo live on 24 hour social media. It’s possible the only actual fact we will see in this whole campaign is that one person will be elected in November.

Featuring works by: Daniel Aycock, Julia Whitney Barnes, Guy Ben-Ari, Thomas Broadbent, Phil Buehler, Ken Butler, Dave Cole, Ethan Crenson, Linda Ganjian, Peter Fox, Enrico Gomez, Sean Hemmerle, Kim Holleman, David Kramer, Jesse Lambert, Lisa Levy, Stephen Mallon, Sascha Mallon, Karen Marston, Mark Masyga, Ross Racine, Marshall Reese/Nora Ligorano, Daniel Rosenbaum, Emily Roz, Sante Scardillo, Philip Simmons, Jeremy Slater, Mark Stilwell, Rodger Stevens, Miho Suzuki, Jim Torok, Kathleen Vance, Cibele Vieira, Monika Wuhrer, Ahron Weiner, and more..

The Split Between The Eye and The Gaze, opening April 3

The Split Between The Eye and The Gaze, opening April 3
Curated by Meta Meta Meta, LLC

Participating artists: Erica Allan, Guy BenĀ­Ari, Tryn Collins, Kerry Downey, Hilary Doyle, Carrie Gundersdorf, Sacha Ingber, Emily Roz, Leah Wolff and Raphael Zollinger.

The Split between the Eye and the Gaze includes works by 10 New York based artists. The title for this group exhibition is borrowed from Jacques Lacan’s text of the same title from 1964, as published in The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis. Each of the works in the exhibition can be viewed through a Lacanian scope of interpretation of what MerleauĀ­ Ponty identified as a fundamental "reversibility" in vision: The body is simultaneously a subject and an object: The
body is the seeing and also the seen, and even more so, it can be observed. The artists included in this exhibition explore different notions of this reversibility in vision, and its implications over our contemporary everyday experience.

Exhibition Dates: April 3 - April 24, 2016 
Opening Reception: Sunday, April 3, 4-6 pm
