All Insignificant Things Must Disappear
November 13th - December 31st, 2010. , Trinity Museum, New York

The global economy while rarely stable has undergone a recent seismic shift. This almost unprecedented crisis has opened up a range of social and cultural consequences that we are still struggling to comprehend. All Insignificant Things Must Disappear is an attempt to uncover new ways of thinking about what has become an encompassing event. A dynamic group of thirteen international artists will present their work within this context. London based Jo Wilmot’s lush, degrading environments melt off the canvas to expose the artifice beneath; Ryan Roa examines the functionality of consumer products, raising them to new levels of desirability while Sandra Eula Lee’s innovative and effective footwear offers a way for us all to keep track of where we may be going next. Elsewhere in this exhibition Jo Yarrington engages with the fabric of Trinity Church through light and image, Slavs and Tatars take a reflective approach and Joseph Farbrook invites you inside his head.Having broken out beyond the confines of the financial world the consequences of this event have affected a wholesale re-evaluation of our individual and collective existence. How we engage with our altered circumstances today, will affect our successes and failures tomorrow within this tentative new landscape. Artists, so often acting as barometers for society’s evolution have a role to play in navigating this latest challenge. By offering alternative ways of seeing the volatility of recent times, All Insignificant Things Must Disappear aims to foster discussion and consideration for the road ahead.
