Anese Projects, 540 W 50th St 1A
October 2 - October 20
Opening Reception October 2, 6-8 pm

NARS, in collaboration with Anese Projects, is pleased to announce there's something happening here..., a solo exhibition by Australian artist Caroline Phillips, featuring research and work developed as a 2017 Summer Artist-In-Residence.

Caroline Phillips´ practice harnesses the tension between soft materials and their repetitive industrial manufacture. In her first solo New York show, this new body of work seeks to respond to the current political climate. Stirrings of protest, retaliation, and self-defense emerge through whimsical and embodied forms. Domestic and industrial materials, most sourced from Materials for the Arts, transformed into objects of resistance and self-defense that resemble both weapons and flotation devices for survival in the current political climate.

there's something happening here.... explores abstraction as a positive feminist strategy.

Gallery hours: Tues-Sat, 12-5 by appointment only
