We had an awesome kite making workshop, led by local artist Russell Richards, on Thursday July 18th in the gallery. A group of 14 girls from the Community Housing Partners participated in the fun workshop, where they were able to create their own kites from scratch, and paint them during the two hour session. Thank you to our Outreach sponsors for making community events like this possible!

Daniel Canogar: Reboot

POSTED ON 3.3.2012

Mar 3 - 31, 2012

Press Release:
Second Street Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Daniel Canogar.

Spanish artist Daniel Canogar, will be transforming Second Street Gallery for the month of March. Using Elements of disposable technology, his works combine light, video, and sound for a transformative and interactive viewing experience. These animated sculptures are comprised of discarded electronic materials such as computer cables and DVDs. The electronic debris comes together to form large-scale installations that stimulate all senses. Inspired by cluttered dumpsters and excessive consumerism, Canogar attempts to revive the energy stored in these technologies by instilling beauty into the objects that are not only in our daily life, but also relatively short-lived in the age of technology. Overwhelming in their visual capacity, the installations provide a littered collective memory and present a portrait of our society in this particular age.

Daniel Canogar is based in Madrid, Spain. He earned a M.A. in Photography from NYU and the International Center for Photography, and a B.A. from Complutense University of Madrid. He has exhibited throughout Europe as well as the United States, and is represented by bitforms gallery in New York City.

Exhibition is curated by Rebecca Young Schoenthal.
