Eight Grand is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition Inter-face, 
curated by Coral Silverman, a group show exploring the ways in which our 
lives are being shaped by technology, at 1013 Grand Street in East 
Williamsburg. The exhibition features Emma Andrea, Jonathan Nissenbaum, 
Coral Silverman, Felisia Tandiono, Vitor Teixeira, and Ventiko. Working 
in a diverse set of media, including painting, photography, sculpture, 
and installation, the artists present new work addressing themes of 
communication, technology, and the virtual world.

The title of the exhibition Inter-face asks the viewer to consider the 
many definitions of the term, as the point of interconnection between 
two entities, both between a person and a machine and between two 
people. As it becomes increasing simple and efficient to communicate 
with others, does the value of that communication decrease? As people 
spend more and more time engaged with their computers, cell phones, and 
other machines does human face-to-face interaction remain important and 
relevant?

Eight Grand is a shared studio space containing a small gallery in a 
converted factory building housing hundreds of artistsâEUR^(TM) studios 
as well as the International Studio & Curatorial Program. Inter-face is 
the first show of planned monthly exhibitions. Each show will be open 
for one night only.
