Upcoming Exhibition

It’s About You and Me:
Exhibition to Explore Autobiographic Traces,
Hidden Boundaries, the Interconnections Between Identity and Self

NEW YORK – ABC No Rio is pleased to present It’s About You and Me, curated by Monica
Hardmeier. The exhibition features four artists whose work utilizes their own bodies as material and
theme. Through video, photography, performance, collage, and other media, Elizabeth Bisbing,
Theresa Byrnes, Martine Fougeron, and Ann Hirsch examine contemporary social structures,
mechanisms of representation, and identity and background.

The exhibition opens FRIDAY APRIL 19 and runs through MAY 9.
The opening event on April 19 will include at 8:00pm a performance of CLOTHED, a new work by
Theresa Byrnes. Ms. Byrnes describes the piece, “CLOTHED explores the relationship between
painting and photography, action and documentation. Is the artist’s work the subject or the artist person
the subject? Or do they reveal each other? In CLOTHED that contemplation is the subject.”

On Sunday April 28 at 4:00pm there will be a public presentation at which the curator and artists
will discuss the show.

It’s About You and Me is part of ABC No Rio’s “in Exile” programming, and is the first of two
exhibitions to be held at Bullet Space in the spring of 2013.
