About the Event

We’re excited to invite you to the opening reception of our upcoming exhibition, “I, Pencil”​

A single pencil is the subject in the newest video installation from Ben Hagari (@thebacksideofben.) The exhibition is named after a short story by Leonard E. Read published in 1958, written from the point of view of a pencil, detailing the complexity of its own creation.

The exhibition continues Hagari’s exploration of perception and optical illusions by re-inserting obsolete technologies into the contemporary conceptual and aesthetic landscape. In a time of handwriting’s rapid disappearance, this work begs the necessity of creating things by hand, of idiosyncratic production, and work born from dreams.

Refreshments sponsered in part by - Two Robbers Hard Seltzer
