This event has ended.

Routine Malfunction examines the absurdities, extremes, and maleficence of the everyday. Bringing together an eclectic group of eight artists and paintings, sculpture, photography and works on paper, the exhibition is united under the umbrella of contemporary cultural critiques. Dark humor runs rampant, as artists examine the beauties, cruelties, and misgivings of daily life. With humor and compassion, the works seek to reflect upon how we navigate this unforgiving terrain. And though our navigations tend to be clumsy, occasionally, there is grace.
