Roberts & Tilton is pleased to present New Babylon, an exhibition organized by Michael Dopp bringing together fourteen artists based on an underlying sensibility exploring the collaborative aggregate as a symbolic social space with moveable articulations. New Babylon takes its form as a freestanding structure designed by architect Joakim Dahlqvist, with the artworks on view – sculpture, painting, ceramic, and photography – functioning as both autonomous objects and site-specific installations within the building’s apparatus.  As a gallery turned out from within itself, New Babylon is as much a structure of wood as it is space. Its seemingly unfinished state – a framework of 2×4’s with open walls and ceilings – allows for an uninterrupted process, or wandering through the site. In this arrangement, space is both paradoxically delineated and unlimited.
