Between the legible and the opaque: Approaches to an ideal in place
curated by Adler Guerrier
Between the legible and the opaque: Approaches to an ideal in place proposes works of various media that incorporate abstraction as both a formal and conceptual framework to render perceptions of place. The use of abstraction facilitates readings of the process inherent in their making. This process involves elements that reference diverse notions of place – its color, materiality, use of language, and instantaneity as landscape. The summation of these notions, a conversation between the work as a whole and its constituent parts, contributes to varying degrees of legibility and evocativeness. The participating artists include Irina Dakhnovskaia-Lawton, Juan Matos, Nicole Maynard-Sahar, Tana Oshima, and Alice Quaresma.
Archeology of Memory: The site and sound of ceramics
curated by Morel Doucet
Archeology of Memory: The site and sound of ceramics, examines the history and use of materials in their raw form, examined through the lens of material culture and utilitarian tradition. The exhibition explores the transcendental nature of the medium, bringing together artists who work with ceramics, glass, and cement in both traditional and experimental allegory to challenge the notions of perception and the psychology of texture, color, and form. The works function within the cross lexicon of said elements and consider scale, both intimate or grand. Archeology of Memory features works by Xavier Cortada, Sharon Norwood, and Troy Simmons, among others, and invites viewers to walk through the synaptic workings of each artist’s mind to visually witness the manifestations of their inner thoughts and aspirations.
