Spatial Flux: Contemporary Drawings from the JoAnn Gonzalez Hickey Collection


Upcoming Exhibition


Spatial Flux

May 29 – Sept 22, 2018 | Griffin Foundation Gallery and Works on Paper Gallery

Spatial Flux is an exhibition curated by graduate students in the Department of Art and Art History at Colorado State University. Featuring works on paper from the collection of JoAnn Gonzalez Hickey, the exhibition explores how space is created and destroyed on a two-dimensional surface through the process of drawing or other mark-making practices. Spatial Flux is made possible through the curatorial and study platform established around the Hickey collection, known as SYZYGY (syzygy-nyc.org).

Giaconi’s work takes place in the field of sculpture, installation and mainly drawing, which operates as the heart of all his production and starting point to generate spatial interventions and imagery that moves across  the aesthetics of chaos and procedural investigation. Architecture, structure, memory and environment are all key elements in the artist’s practice, which focuses on proposing experiences that build tension between opposite concepts like construction and destruction; birth and death; confinement and freedom; depth and surface; dream and awakening.
