Little Berlin is pleased to present “Baker’s Dozen” an exhibition which serves as a prism through which to view the stratified complexities and absurdities of the contemporary human experience. This exhibition is comprised of artists curated from the recent Open Call organized by our artist run gallery in Kensington, PHL. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, October 7th from 7pm - 9pm.
The international grouping of 13 artists included in the exhibition present a delicious array of multimedia works of video, sculpture, live performance, paintings, drawings, and audio. The participating artist’s work, like a box of recently fried donuts, is a picked mix of various delights, challenges, and hilarities. There is something for everyone -- from whimsical works such as Christina Kerns Typology of American Chips, an assortment of chips encased in a shadow box reminiscent of insect displays, to politically charged works such as Cris Varela’s El Coyote, in which the artist uses the ubiquitous bodega sign as an icon of his Latin American Heritage and American upbringing in the larger context of the often overlooked issue of immigrant child detainment centers in the southernmost states of America sharing a border with Mexico. The works on view embody the cross section of the complexities and absurdities of the contemporary human experience experienced by each individual artist.
