Installed | Travis Boyer and Hayden Dunham at Jackie Klempay

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.

Selection from the press release:

“The artists are united by their contemplation of intimacy and the subsequent potential scrutiny. Materiality, lushness, and inquisitiveness distinguish the works in this exhibition. Additionally, maneuvering personal relationships is essential to both artists’ processes. This practice is reflected in the viewer’s own experiences of the work in that most of the objects presented are on a scale of one-to-one. Boyer and Dunham share a belief that the interpretation of objects comes first from human sensibility and an innate understanding then follows. ”

Travis Boyer (born 1979 Fort Worth, TX) Is a New York based artist and holds a MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School for the Arts at Bard College.
