This event has ended.

On Adornment is a group exhibition, curated by Jenn Hampton featuring emerging and mid-career artists who create works that challenge and destabilize conventional thinking on the term ‘adornment’. Through the exhibition, concepts of adornment — particularly in the context of female imaging and agency — are unpacked, explored, and reimagined in new contemporary ways. Works selected lull viewers in and compel a reaction with traditional aesthetics and recognizable, if not familiar, scenes that are systematically subverted by the introduction of new techniques and a depth of meaning, effectively corrupting what we once thought. Finally, these works reveal nuanced interpretations that reflect on liberation juxtaposed to, or as part of, one’s adornment of oneself.

On Adornment features work by the following twenty-two artists: Carrie Ann Baade, Alison Brady, Bri Cirel, Katherine Cooksey, Rose Deler, Natalia Fabia, Rose Freymuth-Frazier, Ellen Green, Jan Huling, Julia Ibbini, Katelyn Kopenhaver, Koralie, Joanne Leah, Aleya Lehmann, Michela Martello, Felicita Maynard, Rowan Renee, Jill Ricci, Annina Roescheisen, Rebecca Rose, Ellen Stagg, and Aleksandra Stone.
