One-day exhibit features work by Daniel Rossi and Dymphna de Wild

An innovative art installation, Concatenation, will be hosted in an unlikely site certain to challenge the traditional art-going experience. Virginia-based Italian artist Daniel Rossi and Dutch artist Dymphna de Wild will create site-specific installations in the transformed barn on historic Cobble Hill Farm in Staunton. The barn will be converted into a one-of-a-kind art experience for one day only, Sunday, October 28th from 3-8 p.m.

Concatenation is defined as “a series of events, ideas or things that are connected.” The installation explores the concept of chain reactions and its relevance in our lives. Rossi and de Wild will feature large-scale mobiles; mixed media and illuminated sculptures; abstract paintings; and works on paper. Through an immersive environment, Concatenation presents the infinity of possible scenarios, linked between past, present and future.

The artist-organized installation is an exploratory step in redefining how the public encounters the arts. By constructing an exhibit in an unconventional space, artists explore the possibilities in terms of creative process. In turn, it can be a powerful platform for reaching a broader audience.
