Bad Actors is a painting exhibition that takes its cue from Pirandello’s Six Characters in Search of an Author, a play that calls into question the nature of reality, artifice and authenticity. Each artist will present one significant painting. All the paintings will be ambitious in scale, either sharing or exceeding the proportions of the human body. They will be displayed informally ‒ propped, wedged, or hung from the columns of the gallery ‒ asserting a physical presence in the space. This will expose both the factual human activity of their making and the illusion of the picture plane, or the work’s character. Each painting will utter a private monologue. These utterances will connect across the space to create interactions and a constantly shifting story.
