C X Silver Gallery presents Nye Ffarrabas: A Walk on the Inside, a 50-year retrospective of her work, Friday May 2 to Saturday August 23, 2014 in Brattleboro, Vermont. The accompanying publication, entitled Water Monkey Tales: The Work of Nye Ffarrabas and Her Walk on the Inside, is part exhibition catalogue, part memoir, part selected works, a tribute to an artist and poet whose creative works span more than fifty years from before, and during, the heyday of Fluxus in the sixties and seventies and continue to the present day. Please join us for the opening reception Sunday afternoon May 4th, 2014, 1-4pm, at the Gallery, 814 Western Avenue, Brattleboro, VT.
Nye’s work over the years comprises writing, the visual arts, performances, and readings. Her work, like that of fellow Fluxus artists of the 1960s and 70s transcends neat categorization and even pushes the boundaries of conventional definitions of ‘art.’
The exhibition features wall pieces, drawings, installations, photographic documentation of her performances and happenings, artifacts and sculpture from a variety of her creative projects. The publication extends the view of her written work and gives voice to her many performances, happenings, experiments, musings and insights. A number of works of engagement, performance and installation beginning in the 1960s will be shown in photographs or else narrated by Nye in the publication.
