Yellow Peril Gallery is pleased to present “Ubiquity” at cutlog NY 2014 during Frieze Week, featuring works from artists who possess a strong understanding of the new realities that came into fruition through society’s relationship with technology, especially how its cogs can alter our concept of play, work and life with each movement.

“Art and technology are omipresent in every corner of the pixelated mind,” notes Vanphouthon Souvannasane, Director, Yellow Peril Gallery. “In the dark, these two can activate light, stimulate movement, create visual cues and generate sounds that nature alone cannot replicate without human intervention.”

Featured artists at “Ubiquity” include: Joan Backes, Naomi Campbell, Paul Myoda, Raquel Paiewonsky, Anabel Vázquez Rodríguez, Jessica Deane Rosner, Garcia Sinclair, Quintín Rivera Toro, Bradley Wester and Nafis White.

Backes, Campbell, Paiewonsky, and Rosner will each present innovative and challenging large scale works as part of cutlog NY’s curated Featured Installations. Vázquez Rodríguez and Rivera Toro will debut a durational performance piece titled “The Divisions of Labor”, which will link cutlog NY with Puerto Rico using realtime technology. Yellow Peril’s booth will include recent works by Campbell, Myoda, Sinclair, Wester and White.

“Whether the works on display are motion sensor activated or programmed via a smartphone, each one is an invitation for the viewer to get a little closer to the light – and become engaged in a world of “Ubiquity” where science is truth for life and technology is nature,” says Robert P. Stack, Curator, Yellow Peril Gallery.

cutlog NY 2014 opens to the public on Thursday, May 8; Press Preview, Private Tours and Vernissage will be on Wednesday, May 7. Yellow Peril Gallery will host “Ubiquity” in Booth A13. This is the Providence-based contemporary art gallery’s first appearance at cutlog NY.
