This July PUNCH gallery is sending work to Nashville, TN as we trade places with an artist collective called COOP from the Volunteer State.
While they are exhibiting work in Nashville, COOP will be presenting work of their own at PUNCH, in Seattle. Gathered loosely under the title Punch and Judy, the works of this exhibition showcase a time and place where semiotic signs collide with physical theater. The result being a fresh and surprising survey of mixed-media works, ranging from painting and sculpture, to photo-based work and site-specific installations, and be sure not to miss the clown smile taxonomy drawings.
Coop is a curatorial collective made up of artists, curators, thinkers and professors who are committed to expanding Nashville’s dialogue with contemporary art by presenting challenging new or under-represented artists/artworks in the community. COOP is committed to exhibiting art of diverse media and content, with a goal to provide an alternative venue for artists free from the constraints of the retail market. COOP seeks to initiate a discourse between Nashville and art scenes across the country by inviting artists to show, develop projects and interact with the Nashville community.
