Spoke NYC is pleased to present Suggestivism: Resonance, a group exhibition curated by Nathan Spoor featuring over 50 internationally renowned contemporary artists. The exhibition made it’s initial debut at Spoke Art San Francisco in 2016, and we are thrilled to be bringing the show to NYC. Featuring both emerging and established artists, the exhibition encapsulates the Suggestivist art movement, juxtaposing elements of narrative storytelling, figurative work and imagined universes.
About the exhibition, curator Nathan Spoor states, “Conceptually speaking, the term “suggestivism” refers to the ability of an individual to pursue their purpose with an amplified understanding and sensitivity. The artists involved represent precisely this - a wave of purpose, working within the more fluid aspects of narrative or figurative arenas. Through the mere power of suggestion, the magic is transferred from one to another, engaging the world at large from the most vivid and evocative of visual realms.”
In conjunction with the exhibition, a coffee table art book titled Suggestivism: Resonance will be released. Spoke NYC will be hosting a book signing with Nathan Spoor and many of the participating artists prior to the exhibition opening, from 4 - 6pm.
Please join us Saturday, July 7th from 4 - 6pm for the book signing of Suggestivism: Resonance, and from 6 - 8pm for the opening reception.
