Diane Rosenstein Fine Art is pleased to present Unsparing Quality, a group show curated by Farrah Karapetian. The exhibition poses the question: where do Surrealist impulses manifest in contemporary practice, and why are we seeing this now? The response involves three generations of artists who engage the legacy of Surrealist practice and offer work that investigates the subtle madness of the ordinary world. Curated by Farrah Karapetian

The Stand In (or a glass of milk)
Public Fiction
An exhibition, like a surrealist exercise; nonlinear, non-narrative, symbolic and referential.

During three months, in three configurations, we will involve artists whose work mirror these ideas. Artists who flex material and content to stand in for something else: a still life for a portrait, a film for a performance, a performance for a painting, a painting for a sculpture, a sculpture for a photo.

A presentation, in iterations, within which we play with the promise that the exhibition is a medium in itself.

This new series includes artists from Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Paris, London, and Berlin, with works by Trisha Baga, Scott Benzel, Gabriele Beveridge, Lucas Blalock, Nina Canell, Marieta Chirulescu, Isabelle Cornaro, Deanna Erdmann, Erik Frydenborg, Amy Granat, Nathan Hylden, Barbara Kasten,Erik Lindman, Shana Lutker, Alex Olson, Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Rachelle Sawatsky, Sara VanDerBeek, Erika Vogt and Rosha Yaghmai.

With the writing of Cara Benedetto, Jibade-Khalil Huffman and Joseph Mosconi.
And populated by happenings, performances and screenings in collaboration with Karen Adelman, Lindsay August-Salazar, Scott Benzel, Brendan Fowler, Taisha Paggett and Flora Wiegmann.
Curated by Alexandra Gaty and Lauren Mackler.
