New General Catalog 224 premieres October 15, 2005 with The One, an exhibition in which eleven guest curators have selected one artist each whose work they feel contains some semblance of “prophetic balance.” Left to each curator to articulate, this loose definition of balance may pertain to the art world itself, or extend into the sociopolitics and spiritualism of a world that often excludes “artistic fundamentalism.” Who couldn’t use another Neo Dio? In an art world where works of fame and notoriety are often devoid of true risk, the curators and artists in The One summon their oracles and set sight on the challenge issued, one fraught with a potential for failure that is perhaps an equal measure of accomplishment and promise.
The curators for The One are: Jayne H. Baum, Erin Donnelly and Susanna Cole (Peekskill Project), Elena Filipovic (Duchamp: On Display, Zabriskie Gallery), Ingrid LaFleur, Trong G. Nguyen, Olu Oguibe (Authentic/Ex-Centric at the 49th Venice Biennale), Chika Okeke (2004 Gwangju Biennale), Sandhini Poddar (Cue Art Foundation), Praxis (artists, 2002 Whitney Biennial), Ashkan Sahihi (100 Million in Ready Cash, Akureyri Museum), and Marketa Uhlirova (Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London).
The artists are Deborah Aschheim, Elena Bajo, David Bowie, Monika Goetz, Elin Hansdottir, Marla Hlady, Emily Jacir, Tomo Savic-Gecan, John Noestheden, Fahamu Pecou, Katerina Seda, and Emna Zghal.
NGC 224 is a project by New York based artist and independent curator Trong G. Nguyen. From 2000 to 2003, Nguyen was the associate director of Zabriskie Gallery. Curated shows include Eleven Nguyens and the Thirty Year Loss (PH Gallery), amBUSH! (Van Brunt Gallery), From New York with Love (Covivant Gallery), Miraculous: Contemporary Exvotos Paintings (chezTGN), and Who? Me? Role Play in Self-Portrait Photography (Zabriskie Gallery).
