Aicon Art New York is proud to announce Vernacular Automatisms: Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahimand Victor Ekpuk, a significant viewing room exhibition curated by Murtaza Vali. The exhibition marks the gallery’s foray into viewing room exhibitions, an exciting space that allows us to offer thoughtful narratives and valuable context, to inform and enhance our experience of interacting with art.
Across both these artists’ practices, vernacular signs function not only as carriers of culturally specific meaning but, through strategies of automatism – Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim through endless repetition, Victor Ekpuk through practiced improvisation – become expansive and endlessly generative formal strategies, gestures that migrate far beyond their origins, joyfully filling every surface and occupying every space they might encounter. The exhibition is another step in our efforts to revitalize Aicon Art’s digital presence. We will continue to announce our digital programing – on our Instagram @aiconart and our virtual exhibitions -  for the upcoming months. Stay tuned and stay safe.
