New Video Installation by Christine Sciulli and Paintings/Drawings by Alexander Ross at LABspace. Opening Reception Saturday 2/6, 1-3. Shows Continue Through 3/5

LABspace is pleased to announce the opening of two new solo shows by Christine Sciulli and Alexander Ross on view Saturday, February 6th  through Saturday, March 5th.

Video installation artist Christine Sciulli’s new piece for LABspace spins off of her concurrent solo show at Smack Mellon in Brooklyn. Sciulli explores a tangential theme of the 8-channel projection “ROIL” at Smack Mellon in greater detail with her site-specific LABspace project “Push Pull Passage” where degree and directionality of translucency are investigated through a two channel video projection.

Sciulli will install a hollow fabric structure, which will bifurcate the gallery and become the canvas for a push-pull dialogue between projectors continuously exchanging the role of front projection, inverting transparencies to opacities and emergent translucency.

Alexander Ross continues to explore the intersection of microbiology, technology, artificial life, and landscape grotesques. Drawings and paintings comprise his show titled “Schnek!­­”

The exhibition opens Saturday, February 6th with a reception for the artists from 1-3pm. The show runs through Saturday, March 5th.

LABspace was founded and is directed by the artist Susan Jennings. The gallery is dedicated to experiments in curation, exhibiting category-busting and/or materially surprising contemporary art, and hosting performance art, screenings, readings and music that push the boundaries of categorization, participation and/or experience.

The gallery is open during the winter on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and by appointment via Please check the website for other days during the winter that the gallery will be open for events.
