Stack/File: Selections from the Kentler Flatfiles

Curated by Ana Torok

Exhibition Dates: June 13 – July 26, 2015

Curator’s Talk & Opening Reception: Saturday, June 13, 4 – 6 pm

Kentler International Drawing Space is pleased to present Stack/File: Selections from the Kentler Flatfiles, curated by Ana Torok.

Featuring 42 works by 25 artists, Stack/File: Selections from the Kentler Flatfiles is a dual-platformed curatorial experiment designed to re-create the agency inherent to the process of exploring the Kentler Flatfiles. The first platform, Stack, is a traditional selections show using the layered and stacked storage of the Flatfiles as a theoretical catalyst to explore issues relating to superimposition. The second platform, File, is an online, conceptual record of the curatorial process, including the chronology of significant events leading up to the opening and expanded considerations of each artwork in the exhibition.

Independent Curator Ana Torok has worked in the curatorial departments of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art. In her interactive approach to showcasing the contents of the Kentler Flatfiles, featuring artworks by over 230 artists, Torok references Robert Morris’s 1962 conceptual piece Card File along with the physical structure of the flatfile itself. The artworks selected and the exhibition’s accompanying web presence reveal themes of simultaneity, association, and discovery inherent to both organizational structures.

Stack/File artists include: Tomie Arai, Ernst Benkert, Lucile Bertrand, Hovey Brock, Stephanie Brody-Lederman, Hedwig Brouckaert, Beth Caspar, Phillip Chen, Yvette Cohen, Grace DeGennaro, Karni Dorell, Pauline Galiana, Marietta Hoferer, Toine Horvers, Richard Howe, James Jack, Damon Kowarsky, Michael Kukla, Stephen Maine, Karen Helga Maurstig, Portia Munson, Florence Neal, Claudia Sbrissa, Matthew Thomas, Josette Urso
