The Unbearable Impermanence of Things

September 12 – December 1, 2019

This exhibition features contemporary artists that use 19th century ideas and aesthetics into their work. Through their exploration of these themes and tropes, the artists demonstrate and problematize the near-universal desire to create stable understandings of things and phenomena that are ever in flux.
