Mindy Solomon Gallery artist, Generic Art Solutions (G.A.S.), will be included in the upcoming exhibition, Crime in Art, May 16-September 28 at the MOCAK Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Poland.
G.A.S. will also be in Captiva at the Rauchenberg Residency, a creative center that welcomes artists from around the world to live, work, and create from May 18-June 14, 2014.
Crime in Art is the fourth exhibition to date in MOCAK’s series that combines art with the most significant civilisational themes such as history, sport, science and religion. To date, three exhibitions have taken place: History in Art, Sport in Art and Economics in Art. The series aims to present these—seemingly non-equivocal—concepts and demonstrate how many creative inspirations and how much symbolic potential there lurks in the everyday reality.
Crime reveals all the inner fanatical turmoil, bleak helplessness and wrong without atonement. Crime has two sources. It stems either from ‘lesser’ crimes that often go unpunished, because they have been committed in the privacy of the home on the weak and defenseless, who go on to seek revenge on society at large. Or else, crime is instigated by politics and religion. Crime reveals the abundance of evil inside us. It is the ultimate lesson in human vulnerability and cultural turmoil.
