smoke the moon is pleased to announce a show near to our celestial hearts, The Moon Belongs to Everyone, ushering in winter’s contemplative spirit. The Moon Belongs to Everyone presents works in dialogue with the moon and its emissaries by nine-teen contemporary artists: Ibrahim Abusitta, Will Bruno, Hyeshin Chun, Lena Christakis, Aryo Toh Djojo, Cory Feder, Maren Jensen, Chaz John, Emily Margarit Mason, Diego Medina, Mike Nudelman, Jessica Palermo, Anya Pertel, Javi Ramirez, Jieun Reiner, Corey Reucker, Jeremy Shockley, Margaret Thompson and Brad Trone.
A celebration of the inverting light of colder months, The Moon Belongs to Everyone lingers in the moment between illumination and shadow–reminding us that the world may become new again if you catch it at the right slant of moonlight. Based in New Mexico and beyond, the artists in the show present intimate, enduring visions that weave together lucid abstractions, mystic archetypes and hazy realisms.
