ODE TO CHRONIC TRAUMATIC ENCEPHALOPATHY
JANUARY - FEBRUARY 2017
Civic TV Laboratories presents "Ode To Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy", a solo exhibition featuring the work of Andy Grotfeldt. The installation feature's Grotfeldt's latest series of small paintings, drawings, and sculptures that appropriate the peculiar kitsch of sports paraphernalia through starkly existential and obsessive mark-making ponderings on the monuments to self we build as trophies to combat mortality. Grotfeldt's newest body of work questions the impermanence of the marks we make, whether on canvas or on the court.
Grotfeldt's exhibition runs in conjunction with a two part sound series featuring Peter J Woods, Gerritt Wittmer, and Kai Ros.
The exhibit opens January 7th, 2017, and runs through the end of February.
A catalog of the exhibition is available from the FIU-Texas and the Laboratories at Civic TV upon request.
