On View May 19 – August 5, 2018
Vulcan Gallery, Workhouse Arts Center
Reception: Saturday July 14, 6pm – 8pm
Workhouse Arts Center is pleased to present VMFA: Futures showcasing a select group of artists joining the 2018-2019 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.
Though this exhibition highlights emerging talent, it also explores a common thread amongst the artists’ work each embodying a provocative storyline referencing human behavior, perception and a sense of existing between two different areas. Between their native country and America; between absence and presence; between humor and patheticism; between gentle and abrasion; and between structure and freedom. Reflecting the bold versatility of these artists’ oeuvre, VMFA: Futures examines the response to being in a place of transition while identifying nine potential future leaders in the art world.
Workhouse Arts Center would like to extend gratitude to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts for their partnership and support.
