Over the Influence is pleased to present Fatherhood , a group exhibition by leading, international artists. The exhibition will open on February 14 and remain on view through March 31, 2019. There will be an opening reception for the artists on February 16, from 6 to 9pm.
Fatherhood will include: Dan Basen, Peter Linde Busk, Scott Campbell, Peter Diggle, Gunther Forg, Rashid Johnson, Mike Lee, Joel Mesler, Ryan Mosley, Reko Rennie, Aaron Spangler, Michael Williams and Michael Kagan.
This exhibition takes as its point of departure a condition so ubiquitous as to usually pass without comment. The messy, overwhelming, terrifying, frustrating, exhausting and joyful experience of being a father is evoked by art works in diverse media by a group of male artists most of whom – though not all – are parents. This is not an exhibition about patriarchy, but perhaps its opposite: an exploration of the sensations of failure, fear, inadequacy, care and devotion that commonly accompany fatherhood.
