Inclusion and exclusion, absence and presence, the canonized and the outsider — these poles act as benchmarks for locating where and what might be considered “off” in 2015. As a condition that shapes how cultural history is rewritten across different geographic frameworks and unrelated borders, to be “off” is an essential and agreed-upon guideline — a self-selecting guideline for a group of artists who meet by seeming chance for graduate study in New York and hail from all over the world. The “off” in Off Pink signifies both a belonging — being member of a group, a cohort, an ensemble — and also a longing to get on with things, to take what is learned and then finally, eventually, and expectantly, degree in hand, to take off.
