The End of an Era

I'm in a group show at Gavin Brown's Passerby that opens this Wednesday February 20th 2008.

Passerby will close on March 31st 2008.

An excerpt from the press release:

As you may know GBE@Passerby will be closing very soon: March 31st will mark the final day of its decade-long existence. We, at, are hosting an exhibition prior to the closure, entitled, Cube Passerby, 2008. We would like to think that the premise of the show is as vaguely thematic as the title, although participating artists are encouraged to translate as they wish.

The term 'cube' in relation to the art canon/institution will obviously imply an array of interpretations. We encourage the artists to possibly think about those interpretations, although we stress that it is not required.

Curated by Darren Bader and Michael Caputo.

Fredric Snitzer Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition, ECHO/REPEAT, by
artist Sean Dack. In this exhibition, images are altered through a series of conversions from digital to analog Thus exposing flaws within the technologically advanced medium, and appreciating the beauty that lies in chance.
"In the end, what I am after is something that still relates to the language of the photography, but breaks free of the use of a camera, as well as plays with the notion of a correct image, or what is assumed to be what a photograph should look like." states Sean Dack.

The exhibition will also feature Future Songs where the viewer is again presented with the dichotomy of manipulated versus real through the use of musical scores accompanied by a text lifted from the paranoid cold war predictions of noted science fiction writer Philip K. Dick. Future Songs being orignally produced as a book, was mailed out and placed on the web as a virtual/mail This will be the first time it has been installed in a gallery context.
"The words of Dick/Dack become the lyrics to songs from 1983 to 2000. Or thereabouts...It is a way of taking the lines of writing out of the badly designed Dick books and replacing them into a Dack book. A Dack sensibility" states Liam Gillick.

Sean Dack was born in Albany, and currently lives and works in New York. Dack has exhibited both nationally and internationally in France, Frankfurt, London and Tokyo. Sean Dack studied at Purchase College and graduated with a B.A., and graduated with his M.F.A. from Columbia University. Dack has exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in conjunction with LOT/ek architecture, New York, NY. The Moscow Biennial, The Center for Contemporary Art, Warsaw, Serpentine Gallery, London, and Fredric Snitzer Gallery, Miami, FL, among others. His work has been reviewed in many periodicals including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Art Forum, Flash Art, and The Miami Herald.
