Elaine Byrne will take part in a group exhibition opening tonight at the ISCP, New York

Artists in the exhibition: Elaine Byrne, Danilo Correale, Simone Couto, Alexis Dahan, Furen Dai, Jude Griebel, Joshua Liebowitz, Martha Skou, and Raul Valverde.

Never Take a Vacation with an Artist Who Collects the Same Stuff You Do is a group exhibition featuring the work of the nine artists in residence in ISCP’s Ground Floor Program. The presentation focuses on vacation and leisure time, a premise that the artists developed in collaboration. Works include Martha Skou’s audio-visual interpretation of a recent summer road trip, where she entered a community as a foreigner and left as a member; Simone Couto’s cross-stitch of a surveillance sign which reminds the viewer that privacy is a rare and precious commodity even while on vacation; and Danilo Correale’s 1001 Ways to Live Without Working (after Tuli Kupferberg), a performance activated by a screensaver, which liberates the ISCP front desk staff from working for a period of time. Set to open during the leisurely days of summer, this exhibition aims to lull the viewer into a state of relaxation.
