On View August 7 – October 6, 2019
Vulcan Gallery, Workhouse Arts Center
Reception and Artist Talk: Saturday August 10, 6pm – 8pm
Workhouse Arts Center is pleased to present VMFA: Futures showcasing a select group of artists joining the 2019-2020 Fellowship Program at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia. This lucid presentation is comprised of a broad selection of humanizing works of ingenuity which liven the art landscape through sculpture, videography, painting, photography and new media.
VMFA: Futures highlights emerging talent but also explores commonalities amongst the artists’ work each sharing visual, woven poems referencing subjects such as the acceleration of environmental destruction, the grasp of fading moments, the provocation of word play, the resonance of family belongings and the ritual of preservation. Exploring forms of personal documentation, this exhibition examines the artists’ response and dealings with traces of past and present and interacting perspectives.
Featured artists include Soomin Ham, Rebecca Silberman, David Franusich and Sarah Phillips.
