Lichtundfire presents Past as Prologue or the Effects of Modernism on Contemporary Art, an exhibition of works in various media, expressing the continuation of a vocabulary shaped by modernism but recontextualized by a contemporary perspective and experience.

The artists in this exhibition are joined by a visual practice and dialogue beyond Postmodernism and beyond a retrospective aesthetic that tends to stop at the Contemporary.

Shaped, burned and sharpened by an individual approach to art historical references the work demonstrates a will to simultaneously adhere to a profound period in art-history while confidently placing itself in the center of a contemporary conversation.

With a particular emphasis on line and color, this exhibition delivers a strong argument that the past is inevitably the Shakespearean prologue, and it is therefore on the artists to consciously close the circle with their own individual deliberation and assertion.

Group show with Greg Brown, Koki Doktori, Augustus Goertz, Don Keene, Mark Kurdziel, D. Dominick Lombardi, Alan Steele, Scott Wixon, Gerald Wolfe, and Adja Yunkers.
