Sean Kelly Gallery Announces 'Selected' | June 23 - July 28, 2017
Sean Kelly is delighted to present Selected, a special group exhibition, curated collectively by the entire gallery staff. An opening reception will take place on Thursday, June 22, from 6-9pm.
For Selected, each member of staff was invited to delve into the Sean Kelly archives and choose two works that touched, surprised, inspired, intrigued, or perhaps even unsettled them from the history of the gallery's exhibitions or the gallery's collection. Their fascinating choices range from pieces they had previously worked with during a past exhibition, to things they knew were in the collection but had never seen installed, to works they had no idea were even part of the gallery's history, but discovered through this process. A personal statement addressing what it is about the work that they find meaningful will accompany each piece. The resulting exhibition—like the people who work at the gallery—is eclectic and surprising. And whilst their choices reflect their individual tastes, the forty-plus works presented come together to form a cumulative portrait of the gallery; mirroring both the extraordinary and diverse program that Sean Kelly is known for and the multitude of backgrounds and voices of the people that work here.
