NEW YORK, NY: Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to present “systemsanderrors” a solo installation by Philadelphia-based artist Jim Houser. The exhibition will be on view from July 16th until August 13th. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, July 16th from 6-9pm. The artist will be in attendance to celebrate.
Jim Houser will also be signing copies of BABEL, a book cataloging his life in the arts, which was published this year by Gingko Press.
“systemsanderrors” marks Jim Houser’s first solo exhibition in New York. For the exhibition the artist will create a site-specific installation mixing words, images and symbols. Jim Houser’s paintings are the system by which he actively catalogs the images and noises which command his attention. His installations act to create a map of the contents of his head over the course of a particular period of time.
Jim resides in Philadelphia, with his best friend Brian, his dogs Stuckley and Ella, and his cat Birdy. He is a founding member of Space 1026, a Philadelphia- based artist collective. First organized in 1997, the artist-run collective focuses in silk-screening, printmaking, painting, audio/video production, graphic design and schedules monthly rotating exhibitions. He has done graphic design work for toy machine, Designarium, and Nike.
