Profit Margin Curated by Derek Reeverts

January 9-29 @ Charlie Cummings Gallery

Profit Margin,
curated by Derek Reeverts is now online. This exhibition features
ceramic sculpture and vessels, printmaking, and poetry by national
artists.

Curator’s Statement

Profit Margin explores modern incarnations of class warfare.
Tension between socioeconomic classes exists in a variety of forms
because Fox News is wrong; class structure is not a singular identity.
It is something that exists in varying degrees depending on each
individual’s makeup -their region, gender, culture, education, etc.
There is no singular, universal group who has sole access to the means
of production, a Marxist term referring to society’s resources and
production facilities. In today’s world there are multiple means of
production -from physical factories to Wall Street, Academia, and Big
Oil -and thus “those who have access” are as varied in appearance,
though not in number, as those who do not.
 
The artists represented in Profit Margin hail from a variety
of geographies, socio-economic backgrounds, genders, and cultures.
Their pieces explore people and places marginalized by modern class
warfare. They work in mediums as diverse as ceramics, printmaking, and
poetry. The array of medium allows the viewer many avenues to approach
the complex processes of class. Whether the piece references the figure,
utilizes color and texture, or uses the familiarity of the human voice
to express experience, the pieces in Profit Margin allow the viewer a layered perspective into this otherwise cloudy machination.

Participating Artists

Blair Clemo, Tommy
Frank, Edith Garcia, Clayton Keyes, Benjamin Lambert, Sara
Morales-Morgan, Kyungmin Park, Kyle and Kelly Phelps, Gregory Pickett,
Alan Pocaro, Derek Reeverts, and Austin Wieland
