Young Space is pleased to present “Keep for Old Memoirs,” co-curated by Kate Mothes (Founder, Young Space) and Celine Mo, Managing Partner of VICTORI+MO Gallery, and presenting the work of 24 artists from around the world. In a range of early-career and emergent practices, this collection of work explores the idea of identity, culture, mythology–both historically and how we generate our own mythologized identities through memories of childhood experience and our cultures and subcultures. The title, inspired by a Bettye Saar artwork, “Keep for Old Memiors” [sic] from 1976, references the preserving and storing of personal effects and artifacts. Each artist in this exhibition in some way addresses the accumulation of history, memory, and mythology.
Since 2017, Young Space has sought to create a platform for virtual exhibitions, whether autonomously online or connected to a presentation in a physical space. Over time, they have become seasonal opportunities for early career and emerging artists to showcase their work, and have gained traction over time. In response, Young Space Views was born: an integrated virtual platform for regular Young Space exhibitions, collaborations, online residencies and additional special projects. Curatorial proposals for Young Space Views projects are always welcome, and assessed on a rolling basis. Please contact Kate for more information, or read more about Young Space here.
