We’re drawing closer to our spring show/exhibition and we’re incredibly excited to invite everyone to join us at our Opening Reception on March 19, 5-7pm!⁣ This show is free to the public and will be up through April 20th, help spread the word & invite your friends to check it out.

“6 ARTISTS / 6 SPACES” is a collaborative, experimental exhibition developed by the Hokin Project gallery management practicum. We collaborated with six artists to reimagine their two-dimensional works as three-dimensional gallery installations: a Mesoamerican daydream, an abstraction of human consciousness, a mysterious cave, a romantic village, a forgotten ruin, and a parody supermarket.

This exhibit explores three key relationships:
the relationship between the artist and a new medium,
the working relationship between contemporary artists and curatorial teams,
and the relationship between the visitor and the artwork when given the opportunity to jump into the frame.

Erik Salgado pays homage to his heritage in a Mesoamerican waking dream. Megan Trogolio abstracts human consciousness in an exploding energetic euphoria. JJ McLuckie lures us into the depths of a cave where locals have reported many strange sightings. Zach Barnard captures a unique vantage point of a picturesque village. Isabella Aimone evokes sensations of America’s urban decay. Moe C. Hibbard critiques contemporary consumerism through a grocery aisle stocked with parody products. Together these artists broke apart the traditional white cube to create these visionary spaces.

We invite you to to jump in.
