Artist Philosopher

In this exhibition, artists come from various visual arts disciplines including fine art, performance, curating, art criticism, art history, education and other creative fields. These creative professionals connect their work to the greater question of what it means to be human, to create a dialog between disciplines and engage in critical thinking in consort with their creative practice. Art provides provisional liberation from the pressures of willing. Without exercising too much imagination, the gallery extends to the entirety of existence. The world is not something to observe through a plate-glass window, but rather something immersive.

“We are artists, we are theorists, we are creative thinkers who believe in the power of art to change society. This exhibition showcases our work as it speaks to the many questions we encounter in our philosophic inquiry, questions we confront in our daily lives and our struggles to understand the mysteries of our existence.”
