The Image is a Seed 

MATTHEW MOTTEL                

SEPTEMBER 13 - SEPTEMBER 30, 2018
OPENING RECEPTION: SEPTEMBER 13, 6 - 8 pm



Over the past 3 weeks, artist Matthew Mottel has engaged in a public archiving of his father, Syeus Mottel’s vast 35mm color slide collection of political and cultural history of the 1960’s. New discovery of documentation of prism artist Chuck Ross at the Dwan Gallery and a collaboration between the NYC parks department and an Allan Kaprow ‘happening’ have emerged as some of the standout material.

Mottel has paired these viewings with collaborative performances uniting artists of various media and aesthetics with his fathers historical image to create a new media environment connecting archive with in the moment artistic creation.

For the final weekend of gallery hours, he will present the ‘archive of the archive’ of MOTTEL_MOTTEL ; ‘the image is a seed’ as a work in progress single channel video and art installation that showcases the exhibition events, the artist performances and the original  photography of Syeus Mottel.
