Run and Tell That! New Work from New York

 

November 9, 2010-January 9, 2011

SUArt Galleries

 

Run and Tell That! New Work from New York presented recent and new work by twenty-one young New York City artists. Included in the exhibition’s wide array of media are several installation pieces created specifically for the SUArt Galleries. Co-curated by SU alumnus Eric Gleason ’05, Sales Director at Marlborough Chelsea, and David Prince, Associate Director at the SUArt Galleries, the show illustrated conceptual and aesthetic trends in contemporary art.

Synonymous with “spread the word,” Run and Tell That! is a phrase attributed to Antoine Dodson of Huntsville, AL, whose flamboyant July 28, 2010 television interview following the attempted sexual assault on his sister, quickly became an internet sensation. The phrase has since been integrated into contemporary vernacular; a phenomenon that could only happen now, in a time when information is digested and distributed constantly via the World Wide Web. The artists in Run and Tell That! took advantage of this wide spectrum of media to develop a conceptual focus that characterizes this younger generation.
