Unconventional materiality, hand-wrought entities, and non-normative forms comprise this exhibition of contemporary artworks whose makers engage thematics explored within current identity-based theories of culture, art, and the everyday. Set loose from hierarchical classifications of art, craft, and design, All Good Things Become Wild and Free is an unrestrainedly chromatic showcase of outrage, Eros, affection, and irreverence. Emphasizing an eclectic cartel of artistic strategies and practices, this exhibition features 19 artists working in ceramics, Claymation, drawing and illustration, furniture-design, installation, painting, performance, photography, sculpture, textile, video, and ʻzines.

O’Brien, Rebecca Mir, Lorraine Peltz, Aay Preston-Myint, Allison Schulnik, Charlie Vinz, Allison Wade, and Saya Woolfalk
