"The body and mind of the contemporary city has incorporated buzz words, logos, marketing percentages, random data and product placement in its ever-hardening landscape of regulated experience.
For me, producing work is an attempt to rescue the 'everyday' in all its versatility and conflicting meanings." Ester Partegās, Flash Art

|Jay Milder, Peter Passuntino, and Bill Barrell will be engaging in a panel discussion with art historian and curator Adam Zucker. All three painters come from the Second Generation of Abstract Expressionism in both Provincetown and New York City. However, unlike their abstract contemporaries they have been using the figure as the harbinger for spiritual and political expressionism. With no mainstream support they started to show their work at their own galleries and formed an artists collective called Rhino Horn, where they created monumental exhibitions and attracted the attention of their peers and critics. The discussion will emphasize each artists individual career and present a collective view on Figurative Expressionism as it began and where it is today.|
