'CHANNEL STREAMING', a Group Show at BEVERLY’S, New York

Ala Dehghan, Robin Kang, and Arkadiy Ryabin are artists who make work as a response to the profusion of objects, blurred histories, and digital data under late capitalism. Through a wide array of media, these artists mime networks and structures that are often overlooked, or seen as elemental. However, through their work they ask us to formally consider the absurdity of the power structures that exist between craft, and our current media saturated landscape. 

Ala Dehghan uses sites-specific collage - made complex by her combined use of manufactured, synthetic, and natural materials - highlighting the importance of a post-human, femininist critique of our economic and political strata. 

Robin Kang weaves tapestries that illustrate a hybrid of digital networks and marks, mythic symbolism, and an homage to her Southwestern upbringing. She uses a hand-operated Jacquard loom - arguably the precursor to the invention of the computer, to teach us about the historical connections between the textile industry, and the development of modern technology. 

Arkadiy Ryabin’s sculptures and video question class and commodification via mundane forms and objects. These objects have been manipulated to become skins and bodies, some bearing emblems that reference American immigration - specifically the history of Jewish immigration to the Lower East Side.
