curated by Springsteen
July 17 – August 2 @ Interstate (Brooklyn)
feel the distance
traverse the headspace
R U here,
running through the thickest air
feet never touch the ground
I’m watching you, watch me, watching you
pleasant worth, patience
the grid move vertically too
all parallels have synced
the gate is open
Springsteen is pleased to present Narrow Waves, a group exhibition featuring the work of Colin Alexander, David Armacost, Reece Cox, Colin Foster, Bradford Kessler, Quintessa Matranga, and Marisa Takal. Narrow Waves reveals nuanced perceptions and acts as a medium between planes of awareness. The works in the show serve as a planchette to harness the subtlety of relational energy through a transitional lens.
