press release :: Mixtape

NEW YORK Jen Bekman Gallery is pleased to present Mixtape, a group exhibition featuring forty-five original works and limited-edition prints from 20x200, by thirty-six artists. An opening reception will be held on Friday, November 20, 2009 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Mixtape will be on view Saturday, November 21 through Saturday, January 9, 2010, at Jen Bekman Gallery, located at 6 Spring Street, New York, New York. Nick Hornby's infamous narrator in High Fidelity warned, "A good compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do." Mixtape rises to the challenge. The exhibition includes original works as well as limited-edition prints from 20x200 and unites artists from all three Jen Bekman Projects20x200, Hey, Hot Shot! and Jen Bekman Galleryto compose a visual whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. The exhibition pairs each work with the song that inspired or embodies it, at the time of conception, during creation, or while viewing, bringing the studio's soundtrack to the gallery walls. Following last year's X Marks the Art, Mixtape offers the opportunity to view exclusive 20x200 prints in the gallery, alongside original works. Exhibiting artists include: Michelle Arcila, Ian Baguskas, Kate Bingaman Burt, Christine Callahan, Christian Chaize, Jorge Colombo, William Crump, Jessica Eaton, Scott Eiden, Clare Grill, Chad Hagen, Nick Hardeman, Joseph O.
