Wallplay and Cuban Artists Fund are pleased to announce Adrenaline, the newest exhibition from ACPW. The collective includes four artists who have transitioned from Cuba to the United States within the last five years. With help from Cuban Artists Fund, ACPW opened their studio, ACPW Art Factory, in January 2019, located in Union City, New Jersey, a historic hub for the Cuban community located just across midtown Manhattan.
Adrenaline is a living, breathing art project exploring the vitality of public exhibition. A majority of the works are created in traditional media, as either flatwork prints, acrylic on canvas, or passive sculptural objects. Instead of the works themselves being inherently kinetic, Adrenaline instead questions the state and movement involved in exhibition design itself. By creating a practice that invites perpetual change in front of the public eye, day after day and week after week, through the end of January, ACPW takes a symbolic action within the limits of planning a show in white cube space. By creating constant movement of works in front of the public, and adding to the inventory live, exposing not only the artmaking process but the process of creating context, Adrenaline is inherently risky. There is never a complete, still resolve.
