Ventana 244: is pleased to present OYSTERS WITH LEMON, an exhibition in three parts featuring works selected by Andrew Huston and Michael Zahn. Informed by close readings of genre, facture, and style, OYSTERS WITH LEMON regards the poetics of the concrete image while drawing from a source in postwar Lettrist 'metagraphie'. In turn, the exhibition sets out staged tableaux of form, color, and scale imagined relative to the sequent, the discrete, and the infinitesimal.

Featured artists: Participating artists include Steven Aalders, Ron Amstutz, Polly Apfelbaum, Jo Baer, Michael Caputo, Henry Codax, Paul Corio, Amie Cunat, Brian Michael Dunn, Stephen Ellis, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, James Franklin, Pamela Fraser, Jeff Gibson, Nora Griffin, Clare Grill, Naoko Komori and Noah Post, Stephane Kropf, Sofia Leiby, Olivier Mosset, Carrie Moyer, Tom Nicol, Andreas Reiter Raabe, Ralph Rumney, Julie Ryan, Anne Schneider, Kate Shepherd, Cary Smith, Barry Stone, Jason Stopa, Blair Thurman, Dan Walsh, Joan Waltemath, Stephen Westfall and John Zinsser.
