Guest Spot & THE REINSTITUTE is proud to present a group exhibition curated by Same Same But Different. Opening Saturday April 13, 2013, the works will be on view through May 25, 2013. A panel discussion New York Centrality and the Practice will be held along with the closing Saturday May 25 from 2-4pm.
Same Same but Different is the third in an ongoing series of eponymous exhibitions organized by the collective of the same name. The infamous Southeast Asian colloquialism is used as both descriptor for their collaboration and inspiration for their exhibitions. Formed in 2012 in Brooklyn, they have previously mounted exhibitions in New York City, and Seattle. Each exhibition is site-specific but remains rooted in the core concept of their collaboration, which is their common formal language of purposeful colors and simple shapes in complex arrangements. The phrase “same same but different” is elastic and is used by merchants to describe a wide array of wares. They have embraced its full meaning by using these exhibitions as an opportunity to showcase multifarious sides of their practices, thereby enabling different combinations of their work to produce new meanings and connections. For the show with Guest Spot @ THE REINSTITUTE, they have taken very literal inspiration from the gallery by expanding the scope of their collaboration by inviting two guest artists to join them in the exhibition space.
