Artist Talk: March 12, 4:00pm

The anxieties that the present course of history induces in artists are often most creatively bourn indirectly. The social chaos, and the pressure of information, the “wreckage,” is monumental. Turning aside offers periphera l vision a full scope. And turning around to the Past offers a very different range of worlds than the one that our present ceaselessly opens. All this data can feel useful, and strangely beautiful. These five artists in Hystoria present unfamiliar beauties emerging from our image and form-rich visual history –created in the context of the strong geopolitical uncertainties we’re witnessing right now.
