June 29 - October 6

In DREAMS CAN COME TRUE (If it's not working for you, you're not doing it right), a series of self-help questionnaires that look to address and solve visitor’s most pressing problems and thus help them to begin living the “life of their dreams” are presented to the audience.

Merchandise can…

Dan Mills | Human Topographies

June 29 - October 13

Dan Mills makes work that is full of observations about historic and current events. He conducts extensive research on topics such as current wars and conflicts, colonialism, and life expectancy by state, and creates paintings and works on paper that visualize data/information on the subjects. Mills frequently uses maps as the space to explore these ideas. He began incorporating maps into his work in the early 1990s while researching the quincentennial of what is euphemistically referred to as The First Encounter. Since…

Ann Craven | Birds We Know

June 29 - October 13

Ann Craven (b. 1967) is renowned for her lushly colored, mesmerizing portraits of the moon, birds, flowers, and other iconic images which she revisits in serial fashion, as well as her painted bands of color called Stripe or Band Paintings, which document her process.

The stripes are so I can see what I just mixed. The mixing process is a…

Screen | Andrew Elijah Edwards | Monochromatic

June 29 - October 13

Monochromatic presents two new 3D animations by artist Andrew Elijah Edwards.

He creates work that explores the moving image as a medium for experimentation within a perceptual landscape of direct experience that lives on the outskirts of linguistic expression and a metaphysical power channeled through the imagination. His processes develop in fascination with the horizons of consciousness and new…
