About BABEL:
This exhibition explores the relationship of language and the visual arts. Through paintings, illustrations, photography, sculpture, installations, video, performance and new-media, BABEL establishes connections between the written word and the recent explosion of immigrant conclaves in and around New York City. Selected works treat the diversity and plurality of the written language as reflected, incorporated, and/or appropriated in visual arts, performance, and the moving image. BABEL (June 16 – July 1, 2010) was organized and curated by New-media artist, Hector Canonge.

Participating Artists (in alphabetical order): Gema Alava, Nobutaka Aozaki, Javier Arau, Aileen Bassis, Susan Breitsch, James Chen-Feng Kao, Felipe Galindo, Iliana Emilia Garcia, Janet Goldner, Jennifer Grimyser, Jia-Yi He, Linda Herritt, Paolo Javier, Jihay Kang, Larry Litt & Nicolas Lee, Carla Lobmier, Norma Markley, Derick Melander, Rahul Mitra, Veru Narula, Sarah Nicholls, Ann Oren & Zevan Rosser, Renzo Ortega, Panoply Performance Laboratory (Esther Neff, Brian McCorkle, Matthew Stephen Smith), Cristian Pietrapiana, Jenny Polak, Michael Pribich, Elisa Pritzker, Svetlana Rabey, Daniel Rossi, Joseph Gerard Sabatino, Nivedita Shivraj, Priscilla P. Stadler, Anna-Mária Vág, Deborah Wasserman, Andrew Wilkinson, and Tammy Wofsey.
