Conflicts of Freedom. This group exhibition intentionally evaluates the responsibilities and excitement that artists experience when creating objects of beauty, expression and value.
Creating is deeply personal, oftentimes requiring emotional labor resulting in works of art and beauty. Awareness of the intense emotional vulnerability present in their works, this show acknowledges how internal and external forces can shape an artist and their practice. The juxtaposition of deep feelings bared and the sense of freedom demands consideration. Often buried under theoretical discourses and commercial considerations, artists must navigate the political and market forces that shape the art world.
Opening Friday, August 4th (first Friday) from 5 – 9pm.
