New York, NY – February 7, 2009 – Betty Cuningham Gallery is pleased to announce a group exhibition, titled Core, featuring works by Jake Berthot, Forrest Bess, Alfonso Fratteggiani Bianchi, Suzan Frecon, John Lees, Robert Therrien, Alison Wilding and Christopher Wilmarth, from March 19 through May 2, 2009 at 541 West 25th Street, New York City.
The work for this exhibition was selected with the directive of finding a mysterious, psychological or personal center. “Core” refers to the center, the soul or the heart (as in French “Coeur”). The title, Core, is taken from a particular work in this exhibition by Alison Wilding. The Wilding sculpture measures 156 inches in length: a thin, oval, rubber sheet, interrupted by a hand cut opening next to which is placed a polished brass vessel.
