Three years ago artists Alex Nichols and Mushi Wooseong James set out on journey of collaboration. What they discovered is that a dynamic tension is core to forging a connection with another person. This tension exists between the desire to be seen and the terror of revealing ourselves.

ALEXANDMUSHI are 'artists as anthropologists'. Using art systems to isolate different forms of verbal and nonverbal languages across multiple cultures they examine the unifying core forms of communication and connection.

"Nichols and James aren't merely observing the world and taking pictures. No. They're manipulating it a bit, directing it, orchestrating it. They're participating in a kind of make-believe that is both ordinary and magical-but it's a dream state that's much more Jean-Luc Godard than Walt Disney. Pretensions get jettisoned. The people in focus are unmasked, even if they're doing their best to "look the part." -Jonathan Curiel

ALEXANDMUSHI's exhibition at MODERNISM presents the ongoing work in their collaboration: Portable Studio, Chair Conversations, Still Conversations, Two Chairs, and The Dictionary. Each work is a seemingly playful exercise of connection and communication. Behind each of these images is the nakedness required by each individual attempting to know another person.

The public is cordially invited to attend an opening reception on Thursday, November 8th, from 5:30-8PM.
