Jay Heikes ‘No Future ism’ at Federica Schiavo in Milano

Jay Heikes’ latest exhibition, ‘NO FUTURE ISM’ is now on view at Federica Schiavo Gallery in Milan through November 11, 2016.

An excerpt of Heikes’ exhibition statement: NO FUTURE ISM is not a call to arms. And it is not a form of immolation. It is more like the variable in an experiment. I know the constant. I know taxes. I know practice. But what is the variable? That’s left for me to decide and I have to find the profound variable. In this case, the variable is a set of Zs that are in between days. What they document is the potential of the next thought, knowing that final representation buries itself, never to be fully redeemed.
