French Kissing in the U.S.A.
December 6, 2007 - March 8, 2008

Taking its title from a 1986 hit song by Blondie, FRENCH KISSING IN THE USA presents eighteen (18) contemporary artists belonging to the emerging art scene in France. This exhibition highlights a selection of artists in parallel projects, more in a laboratory fashion than as a concept or style-driven exhibition. Their work reflects visual production that is largely multi-disciplinary, exploring subjects and matters as diverse as the relationship between art and philosophy, music and film; the dependency of concept to form; appropriated images and the dialogue between form and architecture.

Opening reception:
Thursday, December 6, 7 - 10 pm
