Group Exhibition, Ligature
Two-person exhibition with Arden Surnam and Zachary Fabri at Lighthouse Works, Fishers Island, NY, April - May 2021.
Zachary Fabri is an interdisciplinary artist that mines the intersection of his personal life and the local community, with concerns surrounding cultural commodification, gentrification, and public space. Often complicating the boundaries of studio research, site-specific performance, and social practice, Fabri has immersed himself in environments such as Target stores, the Trump Soho Hotel, and the streets of Harlem. This context specificity often yields work that includes drawing, photography, video, performance, installation, and sound art. Awards include The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award, the Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art, the New York Foundation for the Arts fellowship, and the Colene Brown Art Prize. Fabri’s work has been exhibited at Art in General, The Studio Museum in Harlem, El Museo del Barrio, The Walker Art Center, The Brooklyn Museum, The Barnes Foundation, Performa, the Museum of Modern Art, the Sharjah Biennial, and Pace gallery. Fabri lives and works in Brooklyn.
Arden Surdam is a Los Angeles based artist working in sculpture and photography. She completed her BA in Environmental Studies and Visual Arts at Oberlin College (2010) and her MFA in Photo & Media at the California Institute of the Arts (2015). Her most recent work was exhibited at Metro Pictures (New York, NY) organized by Gallery Kendra Jayne Patrick. Forthcoming projects include "The Kitchen Studio: Culinary Creations of Artists" published by Phaidon Press with collaborator Meghan Gordon as well a residency with Kunstdepot Göschenen in Switzerland this summer.
