CANDIDATE‘s New Museum Post Performance Reception and introducing new editions and works by Lovett/Codagnone.

November 10th from 6 to 9pm.


Please rsvp

Hotel Particulier is pleased to host a reception following CANDIDATE’s performance  A Gesture Absolutely Vile. CANDIDATE (Lovett/Codagnone and Michele Pauli) will be interspersing music throughout the event in what they call an accidental form. A new edition with the single LIES, a new video and a limited edition -one of a kind- t-shirt will be available.

Also on view three sculptures by Lovett/Codagnone. To Breathe In Always Even Though It Kills (2006) a performative object -as they refer to- that deprived of its function becomes obsolete and questions modes of communication in relation to dissent in a gesture aimed to disrupt understanding. The other two sculptures both from 2013 are shown here for the first time. Both sculptures and editions will be available through Hotel Particulier’s curated shop and art catalog.

Lovett/Codagnone’s work is also presented alongside the exhibit ATTACHé by Rochas/Beaupré, which opened a couple of weeks ago, as both artist teams trigger thoughts of criticism and reflection, constructing possible new truths and shaking our conformist foundations; of defined sexual identity, of defined family and social establishments.

CANDIDATE is an ongoing collaboration between artist team Lovett/Codagnone and musician Michele Pauli. Formed in 2008 it performed as a band for the first time in 2010 at Sculpture Center in New York. CANDIDATE has performed at Sikkema Jenkins and Co. at a benefit for Participant inc in 2011 at Museo Marino Marini in Florence in 2012, at MoMA PS1 in 2012 at Cantieri Culturali La Zisa in Palermo in 2013 and at the New Museum,New York.

Lovett/Codagnone is an artist team working together in New York since 1995 using photography, performance, video, sound, and installation. Their work address issues of collective identity and relations of power in social structures focusing on the absorption of underground tactics of resistance. Important theoretical and aesthetic influences in their production are derived from the work of historical radical figures in literature, critical thinking, cinema, theater and punk music.
