PRIVATE COLLECTION
 
Studio DTFU is thrilled to present a solo show of works by Brooklyn-based artist Travis Iurato, which will open on June 14 and be on display through June 29, 2013. An exhibition catalogue will be published for the occasion. There will be an opening reception Friday July 14 from 7:00 – 11:00 p.m.  
 
PRIVATE COLLECTION is comprised of works on paper, combining drawing and collage, selected from DTFU’s collection. From the Ancient to the Contemporary, from Folk to Conceptual Art, using scavenged materials and the artists painterly hand, PRIVATE COLLECTION follows a correspondence between Brooklyn and Dallas. Many of the artist’s works specifically engage Studio DTFU, such as the acronym “correction” to DFTU as seen in Devil in the Details, 2012. Iurato writes “… But [my new work] is really about nature — “human” nature, and “nature” nature. Why and how one makes things, and often for no good reason.”
 
Conceived and curated by Justin Hunter Allen and Lucy Kirkman, this exhibition is an experiment in interstate exhibition within the DIY framework of DTFU.
 
 
TRAVIS IURATO is based in Brooklyn, NY. He received his BFA from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, NYC, and studied at the University of Barcelona School of Art, Spain. He has previously exhibited his work at Ferro Strouse Gallery, End of Century, and Index Art, to name a few. His work is held in private and public collections in the United States, including Recession Art, Miscroscope Gallery, and The Cooper Union.
