Mine the Gap

 What art is, in reality, is this missing link, not the links which exist. It’s not what you see that is art; art is the gap.

-Marcel Duchamp *

 Mine The Gap is an exhibition that takes four artists’ works with a focus on materiality. All materials hold meaning. After the work is done, the interpretation is specific to the viewer. 

Each artist in this exhibition expects the meaning of their work to extend past the apparent objects or materials and to “mine” a conceptual link for the audience. The Mercury 20 Artists exhibiting in the Backroom Gallery show Mine The Gap are Charlie Milgrim, RoCoCo: Rosenberg Covarrubias Collaborative, and Ruth Tabancay
