New York, NY – NonFinito Gallery is pleased to present Fragmented Realities, an exhibition of work by Sarah Tortora, Gaby Collins-Fernandez, Alan Prazniak, Howard Fonda, Elizabeth Bonaventura, Erick Alejandro Hernandez, Adam Linn, Aigerim Akhmetova, Andrea Rugarli, Jack Gray, Hannah Naify, and Saskia Fleishman that will be on view at our location, 108 South Street. In this exhibition, the artists will debut an expansive series of thirty works which also include, sculptures, installations, and video footage.

Fragmented Realities offers alternative perspectives to our current reality for consideration, reflection, and effect. Rather than rehashing the past, or dwelling over the present, these artists test the limits of the economic social system we live in by creating alternative realities through narrative and medium. These objects, characters, landscapes, and scenarios have an otherworldly presence that questions our currently held truths and perceptions inherent in our constructed reality. Fragmented Realities acts as a portal between these worlds.
A person’s reality is constructed by the predetermined ‘truth’ that what they are told is, in fact, true and real. Today, in the ‘post-truth’ era, is the value of reality diminished? There is an unfathomable amount of delusion, lies, and miscommunication circulating in our society making it confusing for us to grasp onto reality. Because of this corruption, the “post-truth” world presents possibilities for artists to construct new systems, that do not rely on real life, as alternative solutions to our own, and for them to create work in an attempt to actualize reality and to initiate conversations and activism. Although they are fabrications made by the artist, through this process the work and its content become as seemingly real as our previous notions of reality. 

Fragmented Realities will run through June 30, 2018. With an opening reception on June 3, 2018 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 11:00 am – 7:00 pm, and by appointment.
