Particulars Group Show

November 10th - December 22nd, 2007

In metaphysics, particulars are, one might say, identified by what they are not: they are not abstractions, not multiply-instantiated–i.e. they are concrete. (There are, however, theories of abstract particulars or tropes.) Hence, Socrates is a particular (there’s only one Socrates-the-teacher-of-Plato and one cannot make copies of him, e.g., by cloning him, without introducing new, distinct particulars).*

Featuring the work of Maria Jose Arjona, Brian Burkhardt, Richard Höglund, Abby Manock, Daniel Milewski and Andrew Mowbray. The gallery has been divided into six individual rooms, each space transformed by the artist using installation, performance, sculpture, or drawing.
