An individual and collaborative exhibition with artists Courtney Kessel, Cayla Skillin-Brauchle, and Danielle Wyckoff
The artists in this exhibition find common threads through feminist frameworks: their works and practices, both individual and collaborative, prioritize communication, collaboration, and care although each may manifest in wildly different ways. Whether through a respect for the distinct properties of materials as shown in sculptural and installation work, to the use of dialogue and interaction in performative work, to works on paper developed in meditative moments, to gazes and spaces documented photographically, and to zines crowdsourced to tell a fuller story and to initiate political change, the artists offer exhibition participants moments of consideration and conversation, moments of directional shifts, and moments of mutual action to create something new: reflection, refraction, reaction.
Panel Discussion with artists and Emily Goodman: Thursday, Oct 28, 6-7 pm
Catherine Chauvin, Louise Fisher, Anthony Mead, Rowe Moser, Emily Ritter, Marilee Salvator, Zoe Strecker, Lizzy Taber, and Mariel Versluis
What is yet to come? Our home is in a major state of change. The massive expansion of industrialized human activity across the planet has altered our habitat. We are actively encountering the outcomes of resource extraction, habitat disruption, and mass pollution.
It can feel overwhelming and debilitating but this is not the end of the story. This story has both innumerable potential outcomes and points of departure for each of us. Wherever we start or conclude the actions, or inactions, we take today will guide the inevitable change to come. The artist’s works in the Eco:flux exhibition focus on the ecology and change that is part of our lives. Some artists highlight specific issues that are in immediate need of attention. Others layout future potentialities that exist on the cusp between science fact and science fiction. This is all done with the recognition that we are not isolated entities. We, as humans, are bound to the ecosystems of our shared habitat. Any fluctuations will ripple out infinitely to remind us that “In this world, a species can only thrive when everything else’s around it thrives too” — David Attenborough

Subtlety allows us the space and time to contemplate. It’s a sensation and mental space that allows for reflection caused by its relation with quiet – visually, auditorily, experientially. At the same time, subtlety is a paradox. As soon as one slows down, becomes still and a contemplative state is achieved, we become instantly aware of the enormous complexity involved in the stimuli we are taking in. That previous quiet experience is suddenly amplified as we learn that through the action of investigation, we are expanding in a dimension that was previously hidden to us.
The artwork curated into the Subtle exhibition is intended to give you a space for that contemplation and reflection to begin. You are encouraged to relax, let the artwork and your mind take you on a journey.
