Jose Soto, Focus

May 6, 2016 to November 1, 2016
Harlem Art Park, Manhattan

Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.

Description:

With its shiny, reflective panels and rectangular apertures, Focus combines the illusionism of photography with physical presence to fully engage the spectator. It is concerned with how photography shapes the way we see the world and the viewer’s visual perception and bodily experience. By limiting the scope of view, viewers can take more control over their focus of attention and see things in a mindful way.

This work is an extension of May 2016’s FLUX Public Art Projects, a FLUX Art Fair initiative. FLUX embodies Harlem’s creative spirit and cultural significance by bringing together original works, from large sculptural works and sound pieces to performance art and thought-provoking installations.

This exhibition is presented by Art in FLUX, FLUX Art Fair, and Marcus Garvey Park Alliance.
