Opening reception Friday, October 10, 5-7 PM
"Every work of art is the child of its time; often it is the mother of our emotions." - Wassily Kandinsky, 1912
You Know How I Feel is the product of several years of collaboration between five local, national, and international artists. The exhibition includes slow-motion video; photographic abstractions; soft, sensual sculptures; paintings and drawings; and still adaptations of filmic conversations. You Know How I Feel is a plea between lover and beloved, the top and the bottom, the leader and the followers. This yearning to connect at the most fundamental level aims towards something more humane, perhaps a moment of trust, a shared history: ourselves and what we think we know about each other.
You Know How I Feel will also feature guerrilla-style interventions in and around the Muñoz Waxman Gallery, converting it into a visually expressive testing ground of multifold emotions and meta-emotions.
