Fields of Resonance

COOP Curatorial Collective in Nashville, TN and NAPOLEON Gallery in Philadelphia are pleased to present Fields of Resonance, a group exhibition featuring members of the COOP collective curated by artist/member Jana Harper with an accompanying essay by aesthetic theorist Lutz Koepnick.
Our present is often said to represent an age of abstraction and dematerialization, a time in which the virtual trumps the sensible. This exhibition explores the delicate line between the visible and the intangible, between what is present and what is absent, drawing attention to both the remains and continued promises of the sensory world. As they trace various physical and imaginary resonances of the real, the works of this show evoke images and emotions that recall things past as much as they cause the viewer to speculate about things to come.
