This event has ended.

AC Institute presents Intimate Immensity and Other Daydreams, a new group exhibition featuring works by Jimbo Blachly, Kathline Carr, Peter Dudek, Alyssa Fanning, Brece Honeycutt, Rebecca Norris Webb, Jim Peters, Christine Sciulli, Monika Sosnowski, Alec Soth, Emma Tapley, and Jo Ann Walters.

Intimate Immensity and Other Daydreams is one in a series of projects drawing inspiration from the concept of the poetic imagination developed by the French philosopher Gaston Bachelard. In particular, the exhibit will focus on how the poetic imagination, shaped by language, memory, but also daydreams, affects our perception and experience of being in a particular space and time. What is intimate and what is immense gets considered both formally and as metaphor. Whether outdoors encountering a landscape or indoors contemplating the inner landscape, Intimate Immensity and Other Daydreams will explore the possibilities of what is the poetic image and how it manifests itself for the artist, in the artwork, and for the viewer.

The exhibit will present mix-media work including drawing, photography, sculpture, and video by a variety of artists. Weekly events will be held during the duration of the exhibit including readings and other presentations.
