Reception: Thursday, June 3, 6:00pm to 9:00pm
New York, New York – May 3, 2010 - Michael Mut Gallery is pleased to announce 4-You, featuring Lucky Rapp and Aximillion Helga Duson. The exhibition will be on view at Michael Mut Gallery from May 12 through June 13, 2010. An opening reception will be held for the artists on Thursday June 3, from 6 - 9pm. The exhibition and reception are both free and open to the public.
4-You explores our fascination with numbers and their importance in our society. Numbers take on the representation of objects, milk is no longer milk but rather 14412. Our own existence also charted by a number and cataloged with the same informal ease of a milk container yet assigned to track birth, income, credit and death. This series sarcastically redefines numbers and manipulates their definitions into playful thoughts.
