ruSalon and helper are excited to present

"Decisiveness,"

a group exhibition hosted by helper.
May 19th 2013 - June 15th 2013
An Opening Reception will be held on Sunday
May 19th from 5pm to 8pm.

The titles of the artworks in the show were provided
by ruSalon to the artists by way of an invitation:

"Perhaps it is Naive to Present this Conundrum from the Onset."
"Subjectivity is an Irreducible Element of Objectivity"
"That Which We Can Only Call Something Else"
"The Maintenance of Unaware Preconceptions"
"Include the Knower in the Known"
"Analogy Making as Perception"
"We Don't Control the Controls"
"The Syllogism Worked Out"
"No Amount of Just Looking"
"The Adjectivelessly Banal"
"The Truth of Accountants"
"Capitalized Prepositions"
"Reflexivity is Only a Foil"
"As Serious as Your Life"
"Uni Asymmetric III-IV"
"In the Fog 1, 11, 111."
"Space is Only Noise"
"Faithful Re-creation"
"So it Comes to This"
"Leave of Presence"
"A Real Possibility"
"Oblique Strategy"
"Applied Poetics"
"Element of Style"
"Autodisabusal"
"Press Release"
"(a/b)/B"
"Outro"
"Fey"

The titles are meant to be suggestive to the artists --
and the collection of phrases is meant to be
suggestive to everybody. They are intended to
conjure a meaningful mental-space; implying themes
pertaining to the operation of language in describing
art, intelligibility as a property of artworks, reflexivity,
and, perhaps, the status of intention and meaning.
