Tomorrow night at the Swiss Institute, an opening reception of a group show curated by John Miller that will examine the nexus among autonomous art and gift exchange. The object for the subject from a subject, an exchange which often denotes altruistic intentions and maintains precious familial boundaries but invariably a social function that is inherently problematic with various subversive elements stemming from the self, the Other, or commercial forces.
A few of the artists contributing work for the show are: BARBARA BLOOM, SOPHIE CALLE, TRISHA DONNELLY, SAM DURANT, MARIA EICHHORN, SYLVIE FLEURY, FELIX GONZALEZ-TORRES, DAN GRAHAM, RENÉE GREEN, MIKE KELLEY
