“On the Blue Shore of Silence,” up now at Fitzroy Gallery and previously on view at Tracy Williams, Ltd., derives its name from a Pablo Neruda poem about the healing and didactic powers of the sea. It’s an apt title for an exhibition that will benefit Parley for the Oceans in support of their initiative, the Project Vortex.
Over 50 artists working across mediums of sculpture, photography, video, painting, and works on paper have come together to meditate on oceanic themes. Some artists approach the theme from a physical perspective, depicting seashells or nautical objects, while others reflect on the atmosphere of the sea as a whole.
Artists participating in the exhibition include: John Baldessari, Martin Basher, Colby Bird, Barbara Bloom, Carol Bove, Jonathan Brand, Matthew Brannon, Ernst Caramelle, Ana Cardoso, Vija Celmins, Nicole Cherubini, Anne Chu, James Collins, Alika Cooper, Will Cotton, Anna Craycroft, Wim Delvoye, Steve Di Benedetto, Mark Dion, Richard Dupont, Keith Edmier, Michelle Elzay, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Joe Fyfe, Simryn Gill, Paul Heyer, Noritoshi Hirakawa, Veronika Holcova, Kyung Jeon, Michael Joo, Jon Kessler, Win Knowlton, Ivo Kocherscheidt, Kinke Kooi, T. Kelly Mason, Jessica Mein, Domingo Milella, Alyssa Pheobus Mumtaz, Murad Khan Mumtaz, Kate Newby, Tim Nickodemus, Rachel Niffenegger, Jennifer Nocon, Adam Putnam, Alexis Rockman, Alexander Ross, Mika Rottenberg, Brie Ruais, Dana Sherwood, Gibb Slife, Pat Steir, Tavares Strachan, Diana Thater, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Morgane Tschiember, Sandra Vasquez de la Horra, Marko Velk, Stas Volovik, Lawrence Weiner, and Robin Winters.
A portion of the sales from the show will go to Parley for the Oceans, which aims to amend marine devastation and promote bio-diversity. The organization also retrieves plastic pollution from shorelines and recycles it into consumer goods.
“On the Blue Shore of Silence” will be on view at Fitzroy Gallery through September 14.
