About The Exhibition

Freddo Chen presents close, but not touching, the inaugural show at new SoHo-based gallery Biggercode. A group interdisciplinary exhibition, close, but not touching consists of artists who present or utilize modes of production that converge through the passage of time and the history of art. Taking its idea from Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse 5, this curatorial venture from James Chen and Kristen Lee will present works that echo the past in evoking certain sentiments and feelings, but within the landscape of today’s surface. Art and visual culture move in anything but a linear fashion, similar to the Tralfamadorian perception of time.
