Hosfelt Gallery presents Moonlighting an exhibition of 20 artists from the New York-area, curated by Baseera Khan.
Moonlighting generally means the second job one takes to make ends meet. In this case, the second job may be the only job. Most artists don’t make a living solely by their art practice. The job that comes with the paycheck allows the artist to do the work that’s really important to them. This is an exhibition of 20 energetic New York-area artists with day-jobs supporting various components of the art market. By day these artists are installers, curators, administrators, editors, educators, programmers, and fabricators still managing to carve out a rich and productive studio practice while providing infrastructure for the art market. The exhibition was curated by Baseera Khan who is an artist working with paper, animations, and video while living in Brooklyn, NY. She is also the Assistant Curator for BRIC Rotunda Gallery of BRIC Arts | Media | Bklyn.
“Artists that work during the day to supplement their art making by night, the after-hours artist who works from shift to shift, stressed out about money and time, still managing to keep a studio practice in the middle of all the manic hustle, many artists strike me as time warriors fighting for space and claiming what they can for art making.” -Baseera Khan
