This event has ended.

Equity Gallery presents haptic/optic, a group exhibition featuring the works of Miriam Ancis, Fred Bendheim, Emily Berger, Hovey Brock, Wendy Letven, and Karen Nielsen-Fried.

The artists featured within haptic/optic explore perception, sensation, and awareness through the haptic and the optical, two disparate, yet corresponding elements in the process of seeing and the comprehension of visuals. The haptic encompasses a tactile, visceral sense of perception. The artists’ expressions of physicality and movement, as well as the materials they use, are all deeply present as well as an intimate, personal component, which feels almost invasive and confrontational. Artworks in the exhibition that focus on the optic possess a dream-like, disembodied haziness, as they focus on the act of sight itself, leaving other aspects and characteristics of perception behind.
