Interdisciplinary artist Ben Jones of celebrated East Coast art collective Paper Rad presents a solo show of between-media video sculpture, light painting, and “drawing in the digital age” at Deitch Projects Grand Street gallery. Entitled The New Dark Age, the exhibition explores new methods of pictoral storytelling through the drawn, projected, and sculpted line.
This is Ben’s second solo exhibition in New York and is adapted from his exhibition Celebrate the New Dark Age presented at AMP in Athens, Greece this summer. The exhibition is accompanied by a hardcover catalogue published by Picture Box and a new zine made by the artist. Ben will also be redesigning the Deitch Website in conjunction with his exhibition. The show will expand onto and infiltrate the site, debuting a new interface and realm for interactivity.
