August 8 – September 5 | Opening Reception Saturday, August 8 from 6-8.
‘Active Presence’ explores four artists’ unique perspectives on the role of the meditative. This exhibition presents traditional, performative and digital medias to expand upon popularized contexts of meditation derived from Eastern philosophy. These artists’ deliberate and active collaborations with place and time inspire alternative approaches to artistic production, placing greater emphasis on process and experience. Audiences are invited to witness contemplative and revelatory acts as the artists have situated themselves in derelict buildings, urban traffic, studio environments and rural landscapes. These acts, from solitary mark making to public engagement, shift distant observation to the vulnerability of the immediate.
Featuring Lori Esposito, Siavash Tohidi, Daisie Hoitsma, and Duane McDiamid.
