“OBO: RISD MFA Sculpture 2016” at Microscope Gallery

Microscope Gallery is pleased to present OBO, a group exhibition of works by the recently graduated class of RISD MFA Sculpture 2016: Jeffrey Allen, Devra Freelander, Maggie Hazen, Nicholas Missel, Zachary See, and William Udell.

The exhibition title OBO as proposed by the artists refers to the term “or best offer” in classified advertising and intends to evoke a vast and non-prescriptive ideology of sculpture-making. OBO is an open invitation for each artist and viewer to contribute relevant interpretations to the individual works on view: Object Body Ontologies, Ostensibly Banal Orders, Open But Over, On Behalf Of [each of us], for example.

OBO also considers the six artists – who have been working alongside each physically in a shared studio space and in a conceptual and intellectual realm for the past two years – both in their relationship of interdependence as a group and in their search for autonomy in their individual practice. While the influences of the artists are broad, they share an interest in non-traditional forms and the use of mixed-media such as painting, video, and performance.

OBO opens Friday August 12 and runs through Sunday August 28. Opening Reception Friday August 12, 7-10pm. For additional images and further information please contact the gallery at 347.925.1433 or by email at inquiries@microscopegallery.com
