> DESCRIPTION

A sleek modern house that floats on an iceberg, or a glass building nestled into idealized painted landscape, are backdrops for surreal emotional dramas and are some of the images to be seen in a sixteen-artist group exhibition that invites viewers to reconsider modern architecture.

The artists featured in the exhibition are interested not only in the potential of utopian ideas, but also the sense of a passing idealism that modern architecture now embodies.

The exhibition brings together two-dimensional works of various media (including video) by Alexander Apóstol, Daniel Arsham, Gordon Cheung, David Claerbout, Angela Dufresne, Mark Dziewulski, Christine Erhard, Cyprien Gaillard, Terence Gower, Angelina Gualdoni, Natasha Kissell, Luisa Lambri, Dorit Margreiter, Russell Nachman, Enoc Perez, and Lucy Williams.

This exhibition is supported by the Graham Foundation, the LEF Foundation, the Joan Danforth Art Museum Endowment, and the Agnes Cowles Bourne Fund for Special Exhibitions.
