09 Jan Karen Finley: “Sext Me If You Can” @ Coagula Curatorial
Open Friday and Saturday during art weekend LA.
Show Runs Through: February 9, 2013
In the gallery basement will be Karen Finley’s Sext Me If You Can, featuring the artwork created by Finley during her recent performance in Coagula Curatorial’s booth at the Miami Project Art Fair. Sext Me If You Can is a display of painted images that were “sexted” to Finley during a 2 day duration.
Karen Finley’s Sext Me If You Can blurs traditional distinctions of intimacy, which become obsolete under the specter of technology and power relationships are in flux when freedom and control are stored on a microchip. Finley brings the process of art-making back into performance art, by boldy returning to the act of painting and the artist’s commitment to studio practice to the center of this technologically-enabled social intervention.
