Opening December 7 at Allston Skirt Gallery in Boston is a collaborative project by Joe Gibbons and Joe Zane simply titled “Joe”. In a society infatuated with personal expressions, “Joe” explores the personal and shared effects of being known by only one, generic name. Gibbons, mainly known for his video work has exhibited with Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Centre Pompidou, and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia. Zane has exhibited at Allston Skirt Gallery in solo shows in 2004 and 2006, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, Andrew Kreps Gallery, Kent Gallery and ArtSpace. Zane currently lives in Cambridge, MA where he works at the Center for Advanced Visual Studies at MIT.
