Title:  “Lost In Your Eyes” Press Release
Venue:  Le Roy Neiman Gallery, Columbia University, New York, and U.S.A.
Date:   Opens November 23, 2008 at 6pm
“Lost In Your Eyes” is a collaborative exhibition that aims to comment on how authorship, mutability, subjectivity and fabrication destabilize simple representation, allowing fiction to take on the appearance of fact and vice versa. The exhibition title “Lost In Your Eyes” is the title of a famous 80′s pop song and it can also allude to a state of being when one is open to the possibilities for the creation of alternative thinking and communication. Paul Pfeiffer, Manuel Ocampo and David Medalla were invited by Jon Cuyson and Dominic Mangila to participate in this three-part traveling exhibition wherein each artist were asked to send an image, idea or an actual object that would serve as the point of entry for the curatorial direction of the exhibition. The curators then invited artists to respond to the developed ideas allowing the context of their presentations of their responses to become the explicit subject.

The accumulated works in the New York exhibition will travel to London and then Manila to interact with another group of artists who were invited to make works in response to the concepts sent by the three main artists whilst considering the works presented in New York. The resulting works from this process of regeneration and repetition will be compiled and documented which will then be presented as an artist’s book, produced at the LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies. The participating artists in the New York exhibition are:

Mayen Alcantara, Brandon Alvendia, Kate Bae, Camille Bailey, Elena Bajo, Michael Berryhill, Christi Birchfield, Ayla Bonfiglio, Byoungdu Choi, Shenjuti Chowdhury, Ernest Concepcion, Ellissa Corwin, Jennifer Covarrubias, Grayson Cox, Jon Cuyson, Arvin Flores, Read Flusser, Michael Gaillard, Eric Guerrero, Jose Guinto, Robert Gutierrez, Josephine Halvorson, Ann Marie Heal, Rafael Laurel, Jing Liu, Dominic Mangila, Abbie Manock, Teruyuki Matsuyama, Rita Mercedes, Maceo Montoya, Murad Mumtaz, John Orthwein, Jeana Poindexter, Alyssa Phoebus, Chaenee Rhee, Daniela Rivera, Ivan Sarenas, Ivor Shearer, Annie Shaw, Emily Mae Smith, Jomar Statkun, Paolo Vinluan, Mark Wade, Jessie Weiss, Nate Wolf

The exhibition opens November 23 and runs until December 13,2008.
