This group exhibition at THE CLUB curated by New York-based curator Amanda Schmitt, one of the women featured as the 2017 Time magazine Person of the Year, introduces 12 contemporary artists in the context of defacement, a technique where modern work has meaning that is antagonistic or antithetical to the original.
The technique was refined and embraced by the Situationist International, an intellectual organization active mainly in the 1960s. The exhibition includes works from painter Jacqueline de Jong, one of the original members of Situationist International, Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter and more.
