As part of the gallery’s ongoing effort to promote CIA alumni,
 Reinberger Galleries will invite 16-20 artists in an exhibition to
 explore the diversity of urban/city-based art colonies, the growing
 enclave of CIA artists and designers living in Brooklyn and Cleveland.
 The exhibition is scheduled to take place later this year, November
 through December 2012.



The dynamism in selecting a diverse and talented group of former 
students serves to underscore the phenomenological experience of 
‘place’, not site-specific, but formally and thematically. And there
 are easily familiar indicators and contradictions, so to speak,
 sometimes taxed with elegant and stylish, anarchic and informative 
depiction. The exhibition’s central narrative is an entanglement of
 stories, personal iconography, decoded metaphors, and current events
 capable of enriching the viewer’s experience of contemporary art.



The majority of participating artists will provide different models of
 self-representation and self-organization. Some are more 
introspective, and very personal. Not surprisingly, these artists
 define a particular generation, a straightforward critique, genuine and
 deeply committed to works that traffic meaning between sound, text, and 
image.

Join Bruce Checefsky, Director of Reinberger Galleries, and alumni artists from Brooklyn, NY and Cleveland, OH for a panel discussion preceding the opening reception of A Tale In Cities. Artists will debate a sense of common connection between their practices, offer a critique and perspective of their careers as artists post-CIA, and discuss their arc of experience in the two important but culturally diverse cities of Cleveland and Brooklyn, NY, from social diagnosis to predictions for the future of art and design in a post-recession economy. The discussion will be held in Aitken Auditorium at CIA’s Gund Building (11141 East Blvd).

The opening reception will take place on Friday November 2nd from 6-8p. Beverages and light hors d-oeuvres will be served.
