    Opening Reception for THIS IS HOW MY BRAIN WORKS

    THIS IS HOW MY BRAIN WORKS

    I’m excited to be a part of THIS IS HOW MY BRAIN WORKS, at Radiator Gallery in Long Island City, Queens. The show, curated by Michael Lee, examines the contemporary practice of collage through its many iterations and permutations — ranging from works on paper to artist books, photographs, sculpture, textiles, and digital projections.

    THIS IS HOW MY BRAIN WORKS features a variety of new collage projects, including my piece, SLOTS — a site-specific video installation, projection-mapped on to the stairway at the entrance to the gallery.

    SLOTS by Maximus Clarke

    SLOTS is built around the metaphor of a slot machine. But I’ve augmented conventional slot machine symbols with iconic images of humanity from across the history of Western art. When the machine produces a winning combination, the “payout” is an interlude featuring one of a series of quotations, examining whether the art world is a set of steps that artists can climb to achieve success and significance, or just a game of chance, in which arbitrary forces hold sway, and everything is rigged.

    Other artists featured in the show: Donovan Barrow, Brian Belott, Natasha Bowdoin, Floto+Warner, Sara Klar, Todd Knopke, Michael Lee, Elisa Lendvay, Abraham McNally, Andrew Mount, Ryan Sarah Murphy, Francesca Pastine, Javier Pinon, and Leslie Siegel.

    The show runs thru September 30, and can be viewed until then during normal gallery hours (Saturday & Sundays, 12pm-6pm).
