Hall Art Foundation
Ready. Fire! Aim.
Curated by DJ Hellerman
May 6 - November 26, 2017

Ready. Fire! Aim. is a joint exhibition that will take place at the Hall Art Foundation in Reading, Vermont (6 May – 26 November 2017) and at the BCA Center in Burlington, Vermont (21 April – 9 July 2017). Inspired by Andy and Christine Hall’s art collecting philosophy, this group show explores the psychology of impulsive action and strategic thinking. Using the creative process as a point of departure, Ready. Fire! Aim. brings together artworks addressing issues of violence and decay, gestural abstraction and linear precision, as well as the sensible and the absurd. BCA Center’s presentation will include work by six emerging to nationally recognized Vermont-based artists, while the Hall Art Foundation’s presentation will feature a selection of paintings, sculptures, and photographs by internationally recognized contemporary artists.


Hall Art Foundation artists: Richard Artschwager, Joseph Beuys, Olafur Eliasson, Anoka Faruqee, Lara Favaretto, Eric Fischl, Daniel Gordon, Keith Haring, Glenn Ligon, Robert Longo, Tony Matelli, Bruce Nauman, Susan Rothenberg, Michael Scoggins.


BCA Center artists: Mildred Beltré, Nancy Dwyer, Peter Gallo, Jonathan Gitelson, Timothy Horn, Matthew Peterson

Ready. Fire! Aim. is a collaboration between the Hall Art Foundation and Burlington City Arts and is curated by DJ Hellerman.
