Art In FLUX collaborates with artist, curator, educator and community activist Carlos Jesus Martinez Dominguez on an upcoming exhibition, FEEGZ Selects: Lineas, Formas, Colores y Cuadriculas (FEEGZ Selects: Lines, shapes, color and grids) featuring Dominguez’ (aka FEEGZ) selection of five uptown Caribbean American artists. FEEGZ Selects opens Wednesday, February 8, 6:00-9:00PM at the Art In FLUX storefront gallery hosted by Harlem Properties located at 163 Malcolm X Blvd. between 118 and 119th Streets, NYC.
The artists – Coco144, Glendalys Medina, Manuel Acevedo, Pepe Coronado and Rejin Leys – cross generations and artistic backgrounds but share commonalities in their Caribbean heritage, New York City roots, artistic lens, and examination of current events. Their works uniquely interpret the most basic elements of art – lines, shapes, and colors – resulting in geometric designs that activate the senses and awaken ideas. Though made up of these simple artistic constants, the complex works powerfully convey sociopolitical issues from identity and borders, to space and history. Their resultant simplicity and abstraction present viewers with an opportunity to explore new ideas and perspectives on current events.
