YOU KNOW WHAT COMES NEXT
Featured Artists Kathy Weaver, Thomas Lucas and Robert Robbins.
Contemporary art does not leave us alone. It exists, in part, to confront us with those questions we are best at avoiding: Do we have a right to be here? Are we subdued by our own invention? How does anything remain precious? Kathy Weaver, Robert Robbins, and Thomas Lucas create extraordinary work that focuses our attention directly at those things which wrinkle the mind. Weaver’s collaged images dare to recall the beauty of our planet alongside the apocalypse we foment, while Robbins’ paintings and Lucas’ prints insist our sentimental past is threatened by an untethered present. This thoughtful, focused exhibition forces us to acknowledge that without accountability, you know what comes next.
