Malin Abrahamsson | Ricky Sears: in between

April 3 - May 17, 2009
Opening Reception:
April 3, 6-10pm
Artist Talk/Coffee Hour:
April 4, 1pm (with the artists
& Chuck Thomas, Director of Planning, City of Roch.)

in between presents paintings and sculptures by Brooklyn based artists Malin Abrahamsson and Ricky Sears. The works in this exhibition are influenced by the artists' first encounters with Rochester, NY’s landscape. They relate to construction, demolition and the passage of time within complicated urban spaces. A common theme running through this ‘outsider’s portrait’ are the 6”x6” posts that encircle unused and abandoned parcels of urban land in Rochester. In between navigates emptiness and identifies potential in the often ignored corners of our city.

in between runs in conjunction with the PLANT reading room and Sunday coffee hour workshops. PLANT is organized in collaboration with George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and The Metabolic Studio, a direct charitable activity of The Annenberg Foundation.

Artists' Talk/Coffee Hour: Saturday, April 4, 1pm
Malin Abrahamsson and Ricky Sears will speak about their recent work and its relationship to specific aspects of Rochester's landscape. Chuck Thomas, director of planning at the City of Rochester and an expert on the topic of unused and vacant land, will further inform the conversation.
