One Night, Two Openings!

I am happy to announce the opening reception of Karina Aguilera Skvirsky: Almost Home and Release: Charlotte Becket and Roger Sayre at Hamilton Square in downtown Jersey City, May 9, 2013, from 6–8 p.m.

Skvirsky presents 12 color large-format photographs of the Holland Tunnel and its immediate environs. These photographs provide a deadpan record of this oft-maligned neighborhood and speak to the heightened security surrounding public photography in the post–9/11 era.

Release, a joint effort between SILVERMAN and ArtBloc, is a temporary, site-specific installation created by artists Charlotte Becket and Roger Sayre. The artwork is a large burst of smoke that is discharged hourly from a pair of empty shipping containers. To create this atmospheric phenomenon, the artists have installed industrial smoke machines inside ArtBloc, a mobile art gallery built from repurposed shipping containers.

These projects, organized by Brendan Carroll, are presented by SILVERMAN, Hamilton Square Condominium Association, and ArtBloc.
