'No Dead Artists' exhibit by emerging artists offers dreamy visions ripe with social comment

'No Dead Artists' exhibit by emerging artists offers dreamy visions ripe with social comment

D. Eric Bookhardt reviews the 23rd Annual No Dead Artists Exhibition

Psychologists long have suggested that dreams are a way our subconscious minds reorder everyday events into more symbolic narratives. Some artists and poets use dream imagery to suggest heightened awareness. Even so, it may seem surprising that so many dreamy images appear in Jonathan Ferrara Gallery’s 23rd annual “No Dead Artists” expo of work by emerging artists in an age when alarming political events are supposed to usher in protest art. Is this just a subjective reaction to political figures who appear to live in a dream world untethered to any verifiable reality? Many of these dreamy views are infused with biting or ironic social content reflecting a range of contemporary issues.

The histories of jazz and graphic art aren’t similar, but the two come together in the work of Tony Dagradi. Best known as the founder of the group Astral Project, Dagradi's smooth saxophone playing weaves in and out of the sounds of his fellow instrumentalists in what may be the closest thing to a classical contemporary jazz combo...

“Emergency Response Studio” is a conceptual project by the artist Paul Villinski, inspired by post-Katrina New Orleans. Visiting the hurricane-ravaged city in August 2006, the artist wished he could transport his studio down from New York to create work in response to the tragedy. Instead, he converted a 30-foot Gulf Stream Cavalier trailer into a mobile live-and-work studio space.
