OUTLET Fine Art in collaboration with CODIFY ART is pleased to present WORK. Featuring work by Jarrett Key, Jon Key, and Kat JK Lee, and facilitated by Leandro A. Zaneti, please join us for an opening reception Friday July 8 from 7-10pm. The exhibition will continue through July 24th.
CODIFY ART is a Brooklyn-based collective of multidisciplinary artists whose mission is to create, produce, and showcase work that foregrounds the voices of people of color, particularly those of women and queer people of color.
This is Work. A reaction to present realities, a mirror to identities both projected onto and embodied by alterity. The work of inhabiting an identity. It is declarative; it is a claiming of space by queer, POC bodies through the art object. Through manifold mediums and styles, CODIFY confronts the multiplicity of its constituents, its greater communities, and society at large. As an exhibition, Work. is a stand in for these selves; Work. is a representative, an icon, an effigy. Through bodies and permanent impressions on paper, repurposed imagery and cloaked soundscapes, CODIFY investigates, as individuals, the diversity and nuance within an identifier and upholds, as a collective, its larger histories.
