Opening Reception: Bad at Sports? New Acquisitions to the Flatfile

Thursday, Aug 1, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Location: mActivity Fitness Center, 285 Nicoll St., New Haven, CT 06511

Join us for the Opening Reception of Bad at Sports?, a group exhibition that explores the validity of the notion that “all good artists are bad at sports.” In doing so, we find ourselves asking questions about the mind-body connection and its relationship to the ways we cultivate a sense of worth, strength, and care for others. As curators, we wonder how bad can an artist be at sports? And how, to begin with, do we define a “sport”?

 

The artists include: Aurelio Akbal, d’Ann de Simone, Ed Gendron, Brian Galderisi, Crystal Heiden, Anna Robinson-Sweet, Anahita Vossoughi, and Dganit Zauberman.
