A Separate Peace
Curated by Anna Ortt and Shane McAdams
With the onset of the digital age artists are faced with an unprecedented availability of legitimate content and media for expressing themselves. In order to identify, parse and organize this information, many artists choose to work across media and disciplines, virtually without restriction, embracing new media, while others choose to confront it by returning to traditional modes of mark making and representation, finding novelty in personal mythologies and individualized narratives, creating manageable worlds that do not answer to the pressures outside it.
A Separate Peace features artists who create works featuring their own, unique cosmologies, interior logics and self-enclosed universes in order to maintain an integrity independent of the exterior world.
