Messineo Art Projects and Wyman Contemporary are pleased to announce an exhibition by Julia Nitsberg, entitled The Eighth Day.

“The Eighth Day” is mixed media installation that consists of wall-drawings, spray-paintings, sculpture and artist’s books. The exhibition’s premise, inspired by escalating violence and growing instability around the world, draws on the vision of Russian philosopher Nikolai Berdiajev of the Third Epoch, which he refers to as the “Eighth Day of Creation”. He believes it to be the final chapter of universal history that includes humans and begins with their fall and expulsion from Paradise. The other significant inspiration was Mark Twain’s  “Diaries of Adam and Eve”. The images in sprays and books are loosely based on these texts.

Two Artist books will be available, each in an edition of 10.
