Generalists Die In Bed

December 8 - 22
Opening Reception: Friday December 8, 7 - 10 pm

The Assembly Gallery's annual group exhibition presents work from each artist that in some way represents the, or an endpoint of that artist's specific quest — not necessarily a "greatest hit" so much as a breakthrough or a turning-point work. This selection of work will be installed in a white cube gallery space. An outside colour meditationalist (yes!), Jen Anisef (@chromavibing) has been brought in to respond to The Assembly Gallery with a selection of hues that will explode the neutral facets of the gallery. The sharpened intentionality of the works will have a head-on collision with the happenstance of the altered space, and what will emerge will be anyone's guess.

A retired academic close to our hearts has said, somewhat pessimistically, of scholarship: "You learn more and more about less and less until you know everything about nothing." It is however, those endless pursuits after a kernel, a nugget of information, an idea, an ideal, that turn cold blue steel to red hot magma, that sift through a mountain of grey gravel to procure a gleaming and tiny lump of gold. So it can be with the pursuit of the artist, who toils after some glorious end, peeling layer away from layer or boring through strata to divine the essence of an essence. It is these intensely focused trajectories that make not only the specialist, but the visionary — and the maniac.
