For their Art in General New Commission, The Still House Group (an emerging artist-run organization based in Brooklyn) presents +1, a new artist-run space in the heart of Chinatown. Housed in a storefront space under the Manhattan Bridge, +1 will present a series of exhibitions by The Still House Group’s permanent roster of eight artists: Alex Perweiler, Isaac Brest, Zachary Susskind, Louis Eisner, Jack Greer, Brendan Lynch, Dylan Lynch, and Nick Darmstaedter. Each exhibition will be a solo presentation with a plus one – the addition of another artwork, object, or artist to the space. Building on Art in General’s own history as an artist-run alternative space, +1 is a new platform for The Still House Group to present unconventional work and exchange ideas.
The third exhibition of +1 features artists Louis Eisner + Peter Sutherland. Covering nearly the whole of the back gallery, Eisner offers up Red Wave, 2013, a photorealistic painting of a disembodied cherry red jungle gym slide. Sutherland takes over the gallery windows, installing a visceral decal of a burning heap, both obscuring and setting off the painting behind.
