From October 15th to November 10, 2010, Denler Gallery will be hosting All or Nothing, a group exhibition curated by Kjellgren Alkire and Luke Aleckson. All or Nothing explores the extremes of compositional and conceptual possibilities, while intentionally leaving out the middle. The images and objects curated into this exhibit helps us understand pictorial extremism: full or empty, ornate versus plain, horror vacui in opposition of austerity. In reflection of so many bifurcated approaches to contemporary thinking, these works present a suite of formalist explorations of the poles and their antipodes. By adopting clinical posture to these explorations, All or Nothing provides a neutral forum for the cacophony of these radical positions. The exhibit presents work from both emerging and historically established artists, including Mel Bochner, Charles and Ray Eames, Skye Gilkerson, Kelley Walker, and others.
