Sylavnus Shaw | Fiat

August 30, 2018 - December 9, 2018

The Southwest School of Art is pleased to present FIAT, a solo exhibition by the Brooklyn-based artist Sylvanus Shaw, on view from August 30 through December 9, 2018. FIAT features drawings culled from hundreds of waxpacks, reminiscent of vintage trading cards. By packaging his drawings, the artist looses track of content in a literal way, creating a reserve of fungible artwork, modeled after the fiat currencies of banking reserves and the speculative excitement that emanates from an un-opened pack of collectible cards. To reenforce his loss of agency and the active role of a presumed collector, the artist removed himself from the curatorial process, conceded the framing, card-groupings, and display of FIAT to others.
