GO FIGURE // a group show // curated by Jessica Ross
2.4.17 - 2.26.17

SPOKE NYC is pleased to present GO FIGURE, a group exhibition featuring the works of sixteen different illustrators and artists from all over the world. Strongly tied together by their subject matter and penchant for minimal, design-oriented aesthetics, each artist is paving the way for contemporary illustration in their own unique way, subsequently changing the game for what illustration means in 2017. 

From the curator: “I want to propel the way illustration is viewed in the art world, specifically in a gallery setting. While many of these artists come from a commercial background, I think it’s important to give free reign to explore their own practice extensively, without the constraints and demands of client-based work. This show is meant to be a kind of expedition into the personal side of practicing illustrators, a set of work exempt from prescription, free to exist within a four walled space.”
