PASSENGER is proud to present Abstracticus, curated by PASSENGER’s co-founder Brian Barr. Abstracticus focuses on a group of artists whose work deals with exploring the possibility for meaning embedded within aesthetic experience, form and material in light of the instability of context in the digital age. With the proliferation of the internet and social media, art works (In images and ideas) travel around the globe in virtual space/time in a fraction of a second. Each time they land or surface somewhere the context of viewing and understanding is inevitably changed. This destabilizing of a works context has lead a number of artists to reexamine formal and aesthetic concerns in one way or another. In her essay Formalism Redefined, Ann Ellegood states, “…the charge that artists are ideologically committed to form or content – that they must choose to foreground one over the other – no longer carries much currency”. All of the artists in Abstracticus engage the visual and aesthetics as much as the conceptual or contextual.

As a result of this reinvestigation of form and aesthetics and the constant state of flux of a work of art’s context, many artists today are exploring the significance of display as subject, as well as the importance of the complex relationship of form and material in understanding and viewing a work of art. Abstracticus brings together the work of 6 artists who in one way or another examine these ideas critically yet abstractly, in thought, form and aesthetics.

With generous support from the Knight Foundation, Rock Ventures and Bedrock Real Estate, The College for Creative Studies and the Detroit Creative Corridor Center this exhibition will take place at 119 State Street.
