August 30 – September 25, 2019
Curated by Steven DiGiovanni, Head of the Drawing & Painting Department
Matter is the body, the “thing in itself,” the primordial soup. Matter is both universal and incidental. It is still, it is in motion and its resonances produce reflections. The five featured artists – Howard Al-Yasin, Olivia Bonilla, Joseph Fucigna, Alan Neider and Thomas Stavovy – seek to ground their aesthetic inquiries in the various properties and poetic potentials of matter. Their work is tactile, often rich in narrative, and emblematic of a desire to recover a sense of physical connectivity in a digitally virtual world.
Reception: Friday, September 13, 6:00 – 8:00 pm
