Hyper School is a five person group show featuring artists Denise Burge (OH), Jessica Cannon (NY), Michael Henderson (TX), Jessica Simorte (TX), and Sean Sullivan (NY), curated by Max Manning.
The modernist notion of the singular heroic artist has been deconstructed, and what we are left with is a brighter future. Thanks to the internet, artists and their works are less isolated from the cultures they exist within. Hyper School highlights work by artists making strong contributions to the respective expanded fields of painting and drawing and sheds light on a shared aesthetic that crosses generational, geographical, and social boundaries. Isn’t art, at its very core, about coping with the human experience? Indeed, the internet’s social space has the potential to supercharge creative community. Hyper School makes no definitive conceptual or critical statement regarding the criteria for evaluating a good Art, but instead, offers a celebratory and pluralistic survey of artists making sincere and accessible contributions to the universe or media in an age of intellectual poverty in American mainstream culture.
