James Kalm visits the exhibition Linda Francis, John O'Connor, Ken Weathersby at Suite 217, Bushwick, Brooklyn, on view through July 15, 2013.
Kalm notes that the three artists are "some of today's most 'obsessed' pattern followers and list makers." In the exhibition essay, Michele Alpern writes: "The exhibition that joins works by Linda Francis, John O’Connor, and Ken Weathersby similarly makes me think about how artists can have a critical relationship to the near-omnipresent forces of the commodity market, in a culture of capital that has expanded even further over the past few decades. The artworks here provoke questions about the flow of capital exchange that seems to saturate every aspect of our lives." Read the full essay here.
