Press Release:

Brooklyn, NY – Transparent Studio at Bose Pacia is pleased to announce the current artists-in-residence, Artcodex. The collective will alter the studio to create an experimental space of exchange and dialogue with the public to explore themes that are central to Modernism, Post-modernism and the next phase, which they have titled Ghost Modernism. Artcodex will create interactive and interchangeable sculptures representing these three movements. In addition, the public is invited to visit their research library and attend scheduled film screenings. We will have an open studio event on Thursday, 7 March, 6 – 9pm where the public can view works in progress. The public is invited to visit Transparent Studio until 27 March to talk with the artists about their process and exploration. Studio hours are by appointment only.

Artcodex is a collective of artists who engage in collaborative practices that combine an absurd sense of humor with political content and philosophical exploration. They have done many projects internationally including The War Show in Manila, Philippines, New York, and Minneapolis, Minnesota, Immigration of the Species, for Emergence on Governors Island, NY, and Boomtown as part of Dumbo Arts Festival. In addition, Artcodex participated in the Elsewhere residency in Greensboro, NC. Artcodex was founded in 2006 by Vandana Jain, Mike Estabrook, Glen Einbinder and Brian Higbee. Ghost Modernism will travel to Quartair Gallery in Den Haag, Netherlands in April 2013.

About Transparent Studio at Bose Pacia, NY:
Launched in January 2012, Transparent Studio is a visual arts program founded by Bose Pacia. Emerging and mid career artists are chosen for the studio program through a submissions process based on project proposal and artistic merit. Residents are provided with a studio in the main gallery space for a 1-3 month period. By turning our ground level gallery space into a temporary artist studio in an active arts neighborhood, we are fostering an atmosphere of engagement and conversation around the creative process. During the program, the public is invited to interact with the artist throughout their creative process allowing exchange and collaborative relationships.
