321 Gallery is pleased to present FALSE SCENT, a group exhibition curated by Sean Keenan and Holly Stanton. FALSE SCENT mines the parallel but competitive processes within the work of material-oriented makers. The exhibition, a collection of studio-based and site-specific works, reveals physical products of the artists' manifold practices, which include founding and curating project spaces, bookmaking, playwriting, and cross-pollinating mediums through layering and experimentation.  An almost sublime vernacular infuses each artist’s work, with great care and attention to craftsmanship paid to the unorthodox. In each case, the use of material and form undermine a direct relationship to genre.

Holly Stanton + Sean Keenan formerly programmed Back Yard Projects, a project space in Alphabet City with an emphasis on site-specific installation and performance. Previous exhibitions include Bed, Bath, and Beyond (Nathaniel de Large, Scott Keightley, Juan Antonio Olivares), NEW AGE NEW LIFE (Morgan Silver-Greenberg), Vis-A-Vis (Ann Greene Kelly, Elizabeth Jaeger, Amanda B. Friedman, Tim Lokiec + others), and original performances by BFFA3AE, Andrea Merkx, Sarah Elliott, among others.
