Installed | Amanda Friedman and Laura Hunt at Spare Room Projects

The artcore journal series Installed are posts for the artcore (b)log that include written information provided by the institution, gallery, or artist’s website along with a selection of images taken by an artcore correspondent. The initiative is to provide readers with the photographer’s unique perspective of exhibitions, performances, and/or events in situ. The artcore (b)log is a platform for new series that are posted continuously, in addition to the biannual issues but do not necessarily reflect the current theme. If you are interested in participating as a correspondent for the Installed series on the artcore (b)log please contact us directly for more information.

From the press release:

Spare Room Projects is pleased to present a two-person exhibition by Amanda Friedman and Laura Hunt titled The Alfred Jensen Painting at Bellevue Hospital.
Their works share an interest in phenomenal existence and engage languages both written and unspoken. Their choice of materials clarifies the transcendence, as well as vulnerability, prominent within psychic subject matter.
Amanda Friedman (b.1984, Washington, DC) lives in Brooklyn. In conjunction with this exhibition, she held a parade with dancing friends and flying paintings, it stretched the four blocks from her studio to the Spare Room space and culminated in this installation. The documentation of the event has been added to her growing collection of movement images/video stills (a selection will be published as a flip-book by Peredam this fall). Friedman has participated in residencies at The Vermont Studio Center and The Shandaken Project and studied art at the University of Vermont and the Glasgow School of Art. Her work has been included in exhibitions at Clifton Benevento and Artists Space, New York; Nudashank, Baltimore; and Vox Populi, Philadelphia. She had a solo exhibition last fall at Eli Ping Gallery, New York.
Laura Hunt (b.1985, Amsterdam) lives and works in Brooklyn.  She studied art and poetry in New Orleans. This year she has had two solo exhibitions, at A Slender Gamut and Weekend Projects, as well as participated in the group show Billpost at Eli Ping Gallery.  Hunt regularly posts artwork and text to a blog: huntlaura.blogspot.com.
