New Matter

September 24, 2017 · Group

New Matter allows artists to expand limits of art representation as it offers new ways of reading and interpreting different artworks, in addition, artists challenge expectations of what an artwork is. Emphasizing the material properties of an artwork over its ability to transcribe a scene with exacting  precision. The artworks in the exhibition pose the question: what are we looking at when we look at an artwork? New Matter will address the nuances and complexities of this question and trace connective threads between each artist’s practice. Here, meaning is in a constant state of flux and is perpetually renegotiated according to the influences of where one once was and where one finds oneself now.
