Cristin Tierney Gallery is pleased to present Inside Baseball, a group exhibition examining the ways artists employ humor in thinking critically about the art world. Participating artists include Melanie Baker, Joe Fig, Neil Goldberg, MK Guth, Malia Jensen, and Wood and Harrison. Inside Baseball opens with a reception on Thursday, April 25th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, and several of the artists will be present. Inside Baseball closes on Saturday, June 1st. This is the second exhibition in the gallery’s Lower East Side location.

The term “inside baseball” is commonly used in the United States to refer to specialized knowledge appreciated by a small group of insiders. Inside baseball within the artistic community might include a highly-specific vocabulary such as “artspeak,” or a set of somewhat obscure, embedded meanings such as the symbolic value of a still life. This exhibition, featuring video, sculpture, and painting, closely examines these customs, asking why and how they are normalized.
