Group Text, the current exhibition at NAPOLEON, brings together the work of six artists invited by members of the collective.
When we group text, we speak to the whole gang at once, our comments sent like arrows into a post for all to see; then we wait for a response. We group text for parties, after work happy hours and now— an art exhibition.
With works ranging from photography to sculpture, painting, installation and encaustic, they reach out to the audience via groupings, accumulations, layers, and stacking, much like the group messages we populate. A word, a link, a sentence, an image, a thread— we found artists to share their works and spark a conversation.
