Show At Machines With Magnets

comex or becamus Art installation/book/art/music type thing,

COMEX OR BECAMUS will be debuting at Machines With Magnets on Saturday, August 28th.  Barton, a RISD graduate, and Anagnostis, a URI graduate, have spent the last year and a half constructing COMEX OR BECAMUS, a large-scale multimedia art installation and literary publication.  This collaboration represents the Providence artists’ ambition, criticism, and overwhelming search for truth.

Barton’s meticulously constructed installation consisting of eleven oil paintings and fundamental geometric elements melds with Anagnostis’ aphoristic written landscapes in a 13-square-foot, 40-page arc of hypnotic aggression, conflict, and beauty.  Coupling the visual with the written, the artists offer a complementary dialogue that intends to challenge and antagonize the audience.  Having lived and studied together in Providence as undergraduates, Barton and Anagnostis elaborated upon their shared musical, philosophical, and cultural constellations in this collaborative effort.

7pm, Saturday, Machines With Magnets, 400 Main Street, Pawtucket
