062 is pleased to present Comprised of, an exhibition of ceramic sculptures, photographs and a performance by Liz McCarthy. McCarthy’s work highlights both material singularity and collectivity. Her artworks in the exhibition continue the artist’s interest in visualizing how those intersect with time, material and desire.
Please join us for the opening reception on March 13, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM. This exhibition continues through April 3, 2020.
