ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Shed is an installation of mixed media and sculptural artworks reflecting on the experience of being human. A similarly stark aesthetic is echoed throughout the collected works from local artists and beyond. The ephemeral quality of the whole installation gives way to immediacy, direct and coy. Through empathetic eyes, the works prompt us to enter a moment that exists more collectively than the last. Selected works come from submissions and prior knowledge of the artists' practices. A call for work including the following prompt was published in late June 2019:
The depths of being will confront us
We shed our skin
We turn inward
Reach for one another's hands to hold
The show formed in a process-based approach. The resulting works have overlapping qualities expressed through concept and materials. All the selected works are an echo of a current wave and garner strength within a direct and minimal presentation. A call to move forward and in certain instances, look back. The works are not meant to inform one another, but to contribute to the collective energy.
This exhibit is part of a series of fall pop-up events supported by Public Functionary.
