Inaugural group exhibition: Point of Departure
Saturday, September 15 – Monday, November 12th, 2007
Opening reception: Saturday September 15th from 4 to 8pm

DEAN PROJECT in Long Island City, New York inaugurates its new gallery space by presenting an exhibition, Point of Departure, with new work by fifteen artists who will be part of our upcoming yearlong exhibition program.

In 1970 John Baldessari cremated all his paintings, baking some of the ashes into cookies. This was documented as a cutoff point in his career by the photo piece "The Cremation Project".

In the lexicon of art departure is associated with the end of one journey and the beginning of another, the crucial paradigm shifts in the artist's development of new work. This exhibition positions the viewer as witness to the causal factors that provoked those changes. An artwork from the current body of work by each artist will be shown alongside an image and statement that explains the specific motivation that prompted this new beginning.

Point of Departure is a metaphor that applies equally to the art on display as it does to DEAN PROJECTs new gallery and exhibition program.
