“To create an Architecture is to put into order.
Put what into order?
Function and objects”
Current Gallery is pleased to announce Assembly Affect, a solo exhibition of new work by artist Kyle Tata. In conjunction with the exhibition Current will be releasing a catalog of Kyle’s work.
Assembly Affect features photographic work that explores Modernism and its relation to contemporary domestic living. Citing influences that range from Oscar Niemeyer to IKEA, Assembly Affect plots a nonlinear line through history to connect the dots between abstraction and domesticity. In addition to the subject matter, the photographs in this exhibition contain both digital and antiquated printing processes as a way to conflate contemporary and historic approaches to photography.
Kyle Tata (b. 1990) is a Baltimore based artist and recent BFA graduate from the Maryland Institute College of Art. His work addresses history, urbanism, and architecture through photography, artist books, and other printed matter. Tata has also written for numerous art blogs including Humble Arts Foundation in New York. His work has been featured at galleries and institutions such as the Baltimore Museum of Art, Maryland Art Place, The Light Gallery (MD), the George Segal Gallery at Mont Clair University, The D-Center (MD), Petrella’s Imports (NYC) and a forthcoming exhibition at the International Print Center of New York. Tata is currently on the faculty at Baltimore School for the Arts.
