Using film as light cutting through space, contemporary
artist Anthony McCall’s work, Line Describing a Cone (1973),
inspires this year’s theme. Spatial and temporary, light is the
primary medium giving form. Eva Respini is the juror for the
2015 exhibition. She is a curator at the Museum of Modern Art.

Camus' story The Artist at Work tells the story of an artist's journey of solitude and solidarity. This exhibition explores the idea of artist groups- through an exhibition of a selection from a flexible group of artists originally organized by the gallery that have been meeting for critiques and discussion the past six years.
This group has been led by Michael Torlen, artist and Professor Emeritus at Purchase College, State University of New York. A rich discussion has grown and developed. This discussion will be explored in relation to this show and to larger ideas of artists communities in the gallery talk.
