Emma Shoots: Destroyer of Poetry | Curated by Ryan Cullen

OPENINEG RECEPTION TUESDAY DEC 17th, 6PM-8PM
2nd Floor Lobby
A note from curator Ryan Cullen:
Ryan Cullen is delighted to present the breathtaking first exhibition of Emma Shoots. The artist's stunning new body of work will be on view from December 16th through December 18th at The Cooper Union. All are welcome to a sculptural soirée on Tuesday December 17th at 6:00 PM with food and drink served by Eduardo Andres Alfonso and Mary Alexandra Joins.
After a four-month hiatus from the New York Art World, new sculptural work by Emma Shoots redefines notions of predefined notions, questions the very nature of everything, and reveals The Big Picture. Ryan Cullen's curation addresses the problematics of placing the non-site within its respective site, creating a vacuum that the work of Ms. Shoots seeks to destroy. The chemistry between the artist and curator is elegantly apparent as Cullen attempts to package Shoots' sculptures into a vacuum cleaner.
