Reception: November 8, 4:30-6:30 pm
First staged at the University Center Gallery at Adelphi University, this exhibition features the work of New York-based artists Siobhan McBride, Laini Nemett, Anna Ortiz, Kate Stone, and Virginia Wagner, curated by Jonathan Duff, Exhibitions and Art Collection Curator at Adelphi University. The work in this exhibition cites imagery of built and variously collapsing structures, illuminating a fundamental concern for the ways built and constructed systems are shifting, perhaps to our collective detriment. As Duff writes, "In an era of environmental crisis, mass immigration, war and changing national boundaries; space and structure have become core variables in the most important challenges we face as a species." Without explicitly employing specific images of these concerns, these artists collectively articulate the precariousness, tenuousness, and brittleness of the constructed environment on which we have come to rely.
