The Intern Initiative program at Cabinet Magazine is pleased to present Materia: Investigative Collaborations in Health/Medicine + Art, a group exhibition co-organized by Matthew C. Wilson and Suzanne Stroebe. The exhibition features Hana Marie Newman and Rick Arthur Wray, Caroline Woolard and Bert Woolard, Steve Gurysh and Nancy Crooks, Jana Flynn and Eve Ekman, Liz Linden and Elizabeth Milbank, David Schafer and Michelle Stroebe, Jess Ramsay and Alison Ramsay, Greg Lindquist and Nicolas Preitner, Suzanne Stroebe and Teresa Au, Matthew C. Wilson and Saul Melman.
Inspired by the interdisciplinary, progressive nature of Cabinet, Wilson and Stroebe have brought together ten projects created by collaborative pairs of artists and health professionals. Created specifically for this exhibition, each collaborative piece is an investigation into materiality, drawing on the unique combination of each pair’s professional and creative practices. The result is a collection of work that transcends boundaries in order to engage the public in a discussion about how art and health affects us all. This conversation, about the process of collaboration and the blurring of boundaries between health and aesthetics are as integral to the show as the projects presented in the exhibition space. So please stop by, and bring friends and questions.
Materia is part of the Intern Initiative at Cabinet Magazine, a program bringing together unpaid interns from non-profit cultural institutions in New York City, and offering them an opportunity to plan events at Cabinet’s exhibition space.
