This event has ended.

It can be argued that any work of art, from modest scale to gargantuan sprawl, is employed by the action and participation of the viewer. But perhaps more than any other discipline, sculpture arrests the viewers full attention. Through mere perception, sculpture can quickly affect our experiences, challenging the boundaries that we often place on the intention of an artwork. By creating a new world with new borders and conditions, each sculpture in this group exhibition embraces both the viewer and the object, using the relationship between the two to recreate the definitions of reality, invention, and representation.

With porcelain, maps, zip ties, wood, latex, and various other materials, these six artists construct nuanced universes that give us sneak peaks into post apocalyptic futures, offer new lenses and body armor to help us view scenes from imagined narratives, and visually translate information as familiar as a map and as individual as our belief in God. The new world that is created in the gallery is contextual: the information delivered not only piece by piece, but viewer by viewer. Each experience will be a co-production between the artwork and the viewer and together they will unlock both aesthetic importance and visual functionality.
