NXT.Message

Elizabeth Cohen, Emile Devereaux, Scott McCarney, Cheryl Sourkes


NXT.Message brings together works by four artists from New York and Toronto issuing from the notion of the palimpsest. Collectively, the images and objects of Cohen, Devereaux, McCarney and Sourkes can be seen to offer contemporary expressions of traditional Jewish themes, reworked as they circulate through secular environments. As Reade observes, "All artistic gesture is a rewriting, even if the artwork doesn't preserve the notion of the sacred that is embedded in the traditional palimpsest."
