Capricious Space is pleased to announce Saturday Sun, a group exhibition of new photography and works on paper by twelve emerging artists. Opening July 14th, works are on view through August 21, 2010. A reception will take place on Wednesday, July 14th from 6 – 8pm.
Released in 1969, when British musician Nick Drake was about twenty-one years old, the song “Saturday Sun” (Five Leaves Left LP) speaks of a brief reprieve from melancholy – sunshine that appears without warning, disappears just as quickly as it came, and leaves behind memories indelible and recurring, however positively or negatively distorted from reality they may be. The artworks shown provide analogous visual instances of a warm reprieve from an ordinary trajectory of thinking or living – some real and some manufactured – all transporting nonetheless.
