Friday Night

Hello to all,

I want to thank all members who braved the inclement weather last night to go to Point of View Gallery. Both Amelie and Joao thank you for coming. I learned a lot about Portugal's dictatorship history through Joao's photographs and your questions. I thought it was a very good group and I was happy to introduce everyone to each other.

As far as tonight is concerned, I'm not scheduling a meetup, but I will be going to this tonight at an undetermined time. If you decide to go and can't find me there, call me at 646.269.9494. Here are the details...

Curated by Yaelle Amir

ISE Cultural Foundation is pleased to present In the Private Eye, a group exhibition curated by Yaelle Amir, and featuring works by the artists Nin Brudermann, Carlos Motta, Trevor Paglen, Dannielle Tegeder, Anna Von Mertens, and Amy Westpfahl.

These six artists continuously challenge the conventions of artistic practice, as they adopt an investigative approach to give form to matters that are either inherently obscured or altogether overwritten by time. Aided by modern technology that affords them unlimited access to information?they seek to unearth truths that illuminate various aspects of our current reality.

Doubling as researchers, scientists, historians, or detectives, these artists are prompted by far-fetched clues and minuscule details buried in the vast and peculiar nature of our culture. Over time, they amass bits of information, which enable them to construct a visual narrative
that bears both individual and collective implications. By employing bold and unconventional methods, they ultimately broaden our understanding of historical, cultural, and scientific issues. A celestial pattern, a desolate weapon-testing facility, a forgotten cemetery, a deserted cabinet, a combat training school, and mysterious disappearances of individuals?have all led to the development of each of the six comprehensive projects included in this exhibition.

With curiosity and motivation serving as the artists' catalyst to delve further into diverse realms, these works expose a history of a place, an object, or a life?thus making visible that which could have otherwise remained permanently concealed.
