PITTSBURGH CULTURAL TRUST ANNOUNCES

EVENT HORIZON

A NEW MULTIMEDIA EXHIBITION AT
SPACE GALLERY

Opening Reception | February 10 | 5:30 PM

PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is pleased to announce the opening of Event Horizon, the newest exhibition at SPACE Gallery, 812 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. Featuring national and international artists, the exhibition will open on February 9, with an opening reception held on February 10 from 5:30-10:00 p.m.

Event Horizon refers to the point of no return, no looking back, a precipice, the threshold between space and non-space. Each artist is distinct in their use of media and strategies of representation, but all are concerned with the edge between the screen and reality, as a place of manipulation and interpretation.  The show brings together works by artists Leah Beeferman (Providence, RI/Helsinki, FI), Jerstin Crosby (Chapel Hill, NC), Steve Gurysh (Pittsburgh, PA), Jessica Langley (Colorado Springs, CO) and Elizabeth McTernan (Berlin, Germany).

Event Horizon is a collaboratively organized exhibition. All of the artists were brought together through a string of interrelated and overlapping ideas, although they all work in different media,” shares artist Jessica Langley.

“We have been in conversation for over three years in the making of this project, which has changed and evolved as the political landscape has shifted and scientists have continued to sound alarms about the changing climate,” adds Jerstin Crosby.

The exhibition at SPACE is the second iteration of this exhibition, which first appeared at the Knockdown Center in Maspeth, Queens in spring 2016. This exhibition offers a chance to show new works in a much larger setting.

SPACE is located at 812 Liberty Avenue. Gallery Hours: Wed & Thurs: 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; Fri & Sat: 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sun 11 a.m.-5 p.m. The gallery is free and open to the public. SPACE is a project of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. For more information please visit: http://www.SpacePittsburgh.org.

Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has overseen one of Pittsburgh’s most historic transformations: turning a seedy red-light district into a magnet destination for arts lovers, residents, visitors, and business owners. Founded in 1984, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a non-profit arts organization whose mission is the cultural and economic revitalization of a 14-block arts and entertainment/residential neighborhood called the Cultural District. The District is one of the country’s largest land masses “curated” by a single nonprofit arts organization. A major catalytic force in the city, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a unique model of how public-private partnerships can reinvent a city with authenticity, innovation and creativity. Using the arts as an economic catalyst, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has holistically created a world-renowned Cultural District that is revitalizing the city, improving the regional economy and enhancing Pittsburgh’s quality of life. Thanks to the support of foundations, corporations, government agencies and thousands of private citizens, the Cultural Trust stands as a national model of urban redevelopment through the arts.
