Human is a show curated by Alyssa Schmitt, displaying works from local artists that reflect the human experience. The exhibition will create a dialogue between the curated works, connecting the dots between viewing their respective self, others, and the absence of subjects embodying a space. The perspectives of each artist will offer multiple facets of the individual interpretation of being human.
The show will also feature The Blue Chair Project, an installation and performance by Alyssa Schmitt. Utilizing color and body language, this collection of portraits aims to capture a likeness to a person while still maintaining anonymity. The blue chair offers a space to sit and allow yourself to be depicted in the specific color that represents you. Attendees are able to select a panel and choose a time slot to sit in the chair as a subject for a painting. Upon completion, the portrait will be rehung in its original spot to remain for the rest of the exhibition. When the show ends on March 31st, the paintings will be returned to each subject. Each painting will cost 40$ and take approximately 20 minutes.Performances will take place starting at 7:30 on February 3rd and March 3rd during First Friday inside Petshop Gallery 2725 N. 62nd St.
