LYNN ROSE, CURATOR
MediaMerge, New York's newest alternative emerging art association, is
joining the Free Biennial to stimulate the public with an exhibition entitled
Raw Desire. Organizers hope the public will expose themselves to this
exhibit which bares all in an attempt to study and celebrate the common
drives that link people.
Raw Desire is being curated by Coralee Lynn Rose, an artist and independent
curator who rides the cutting edge in vital, contemporary art. Raw Desire
is affiliated not only with the Free Biennial but also with Hunter College's
open studios and is the latest permutation in Rose's quest to mate the
concepts of the installation piece and the group exhibition. To realize
Raw Desire, Rose will transform her studio space into an exhibition space
and play host to nine emerging artists creating works by applying strong
intimate experience of the viscera rather than more superficial treatment
of the merely academic.
Raw Desire will address the following questions: How has the current cultural
climate changed the methods and tactics necessary for intimate expression?
Has the art making process changed in the current climate? Can valid work
be created under inane pretensions? The answers to these questions and
other unvarnished truths will be revealed at the Raw Desire exhibition!
