Assistant professor Nicole Awai was featured in Sploch, a two-venue exhibition on the Lower East Side curated by Eileen Jeng. The exhibition was on view at Sperone Westwater Gallery from July 7 - August 12, 2016.

Splotch featured artists whose work involves a methodical and controlled process of creating seemingly free form or random daubs and spots. The title of the exhibition is inspired by Sol LeWitt’s fiberglass pieces titled Splotches and the working drawings or “footprints.” Lewitt’s 12-foot long sculpture Splotch #3, 2000, which was previously shown at The Met in 2005, and the working drawings will be exhibited for the first time at Lesley Heller Workspace, the other venue of the exhibition.

Splotch includes works by Nicole Awai, Lynda Benglis, Trudy Benson, Matias Cuevas, Lucky DeBellevue, Alex Dodge, Mary Heilmann, Andreas Kocks, Sol LeWitt, Emil Lukas, Riad Miah, Takesada Matsutani, Landon Metz, Angel Otero, Otto Piene, David Reed, Taney Roniger, Brie Ruais, Julia von Eichel, Terry Winters, and Jian-Jun Zhang.

"Double Act: Art and Comedy" at The MAC Theatre Belfast

This major exhibition explores how comedy is important in shaping meaning, and how it can help us negotiate the complexities of everyday life.

What we find funny can be cruel and hateful, it can establish symbolic boundaries that divide people into distinct groups, setting those with power against those without and vice-versa. But it is also a way of binding people together; providing consolation, a sense of shared experience and a powerful weapon of resistance.

Double Act presents the multiple forms of the comedic as it is manifest through the experience of contemporary art. Drawing together artists from diverse cultural and political contexts, each of whom share an interest in humour as a resource with which to animate their art practice and connect with an audience, both local and international, this exhibition will explore questions of cultural distinctiveness in an increasingly globalised world.

This project is staged across both the MAC’s galleries, and the galleries at the Bluecoat in Liverpool, with each venue presenting a different line up of artists simultaneously.

The exhibition will be on view until July 31, 2016.
