SPACE Gallery is pleased to present The Same River, an installation by Providence-based artist, Nick Carter on view in the window from Friday, November 3, 2017 through Saturday, January 6, 2018.
He also recently collaborated with Portland's own youth collective Kesho Wazo to present a new edition of streetwear at the intersection of punk and couture. Guided by an ethic of collaboration, youth empowerment, and de-professionalization, the line features all-over bleach patterns punctuated by patches of screen-printed imagery and sections of 'upcycled' clothing.
Nick Carter returns to Portland on Monday, December 18, at 6PM to discuss his installation and artistic process.
Nick Carter's installation layers cut and dyed cotton that is activated by the changing sunlight and the in-motion eyes each pedestrian, rider, and driver on Congress Street. Inspired by the experience of walking alongside fences and the staccato glimpses of the property they protect, this installation aims to create a fluctuating and customizable phenomenological experience.
