EFA Gallery announces a new exhibition curated by David Humphrey, The horizon is subjective, entirely determined by the position of the spectator. Because it has no independent existence it has become a symbol for a variety of thresholds: the visible, the thinkable and the knowable. Every artwork in this exhibition will have a horizon and will be abutted and aligned to adjacent works on it’s left and right so as to make one continuous horizon around the gallery. Horizons in pictures are always cropped fragments, which, nonetheless, confirm the spectator’s position at the center of his or her experience. This exhibition will tether every artist’s horizon with all the other’s to create an irrationally cooperative panorama, a heterogeneous continuity that weakens the boundaries between works while staging their differences.
Approximately 40 artists of all disciplines and career levels will be included in the exhibition including:
Bill Adams, Meredith Allen, Diti Almog, Ellen Altfest, Louise Belcourt, Brian Belott, Katherine Bradford, Benjamin Butler, Dana Carlson, Jennifer Coates, Adam Cvijanovic, Angela Dufresne, Nicole Eisenman, Judith Eisler, Rochelle Feinstein, Jeff Gauntt, EJ Hauser, Catherine Howe, James Hyde, Susan Jennings, Lisa Klapstock, Dorota Kolodziejczyk, Bill Komoski, Julian Kreimer, Michael Lazarus, Medrie MacPhee, Chris Martin, Suzanne McClelland, Elizaveta Meksin, Santi Moix, Donna Moylan, Laura Newman, Gary Petersen, Alexander Ross, Sally Ross, Frank Schroder, Kate Shepherd, Amy Sillman, Elena Sisto, Rebecca Smith, Eva Struble, Team SHaG, Len Tsvetkov, Stanley Whitney, Paula Wilson, and others…

This exhibition is presented by the EFA Gallery, a program of The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts. With additional support from The Helen Keeler Burke Charitable Foundation, Peter C. Gould, Materials for the Arts, and Carnegie Corporation Inc. and many generous individuals.
The EFA Gallery is a curatorial project space. Through the gallery, The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts supports the creative work of independent curators. Curators build the framework in which we understand artists and the art they make. At their best, they redefine how we look at culture. The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts believes in the essential importance of art in a civil society. The value of the artist's creative spirit is not limited by age, race, nationality or acceptance by others.
