Theodore:Art presents Unknown Unknowns, an exhibition of works that evades definitive interpretation. The works gathered herein offer ambiguous meanings, “suspended between the image and its description, between definition and approximation.” Organized by instinct and subconscious urges, this exhibition suggests the relations among the work on view evoke a train of thought “outside articulated language while nevertheless within interlocution.”
