The female collaborative group, Trill Matrix, has undertaken an experimental exhibition employing an open approach, rather than an umbrella approach. The artists of Trill Matrix have traveled on overlapping paths in New York City’s art communities, and in their art practices. While their artwork demonstrates a variety of strategies and materials, and they are from diverse backgrounds, they appreciate their commonalities in a hectic world and divisive cultural moment, and pass around hats as to the curatorial/organizational roles each engages.
“Trill” is an adjective used in hip-hop culture to describe someone who is considered to be well respected, coming from a combination of the words “true” and “real"; while “matrix” is a situation or surrounding substance within which something else originates, develops, or is contained.
