About this Event

“A million zeros added up, unfortunately does not add up to one.” -C.G.Jung

Archetypes have existed with humanity for many millennia through various cultures. They were keenly explored by legendary psychiatrist & psychoanalyst Carl Jung. The archetype can be defined as psychic patterns of the human mind seen through symbolic imagery. Archetypes are constantly intertwined within our lives, as they not only influence our thoughts, our emotions, our behaviors but also the way we perceive the world. b{x} Spaces is pleased to present a group exhibition based on Jung’s ideas and concepts of the archetype. This exhibition titled, “A Million Zeros: The 21st Century Archetype”, explores themes of current human nature, contemporary societal mechanics and the mystery of self.

This exhibition seeks to explore ideas about our society and the archetypes through the lens of the figure in 21st century life. All of the works combine “the figure” with non traditional ways of viewing figurative work.

Curator G.Romero is bringing together a collection of artist from various locations including:

Sergio Barrios (Venzuela) http://elhase.sangreskateboards.com

Michael Aitken (USA)

Cynthia Graps (Mexico) http://cynthiagp.com

Lizette Abraham (Mexico) http://lizetteabraham.com

Victor Sandoval (Mexico)

Joe Lieske (USA/Mexico) https://joelieske.com

“A Million Zeros”, engages viewers in a visual discussion about the role of the archetype in our lives and how, perhaps lack of critical knowledge of the archetypes has led our society down a path of self destruction. Can it be said that we are becoming blinded by the comfort of 21st century living: a cuisine of plastic solutions, organic emptiness, on the edge of interconnected social meaninglessness?

There will be two special performances from Sergio Barrios & Cynthia Graps on the opening night so please join us for the festivities!

“A Million Zeros” will be on view from April 26th - June 7th 2019 at b{x} Spaces in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
