Adam Lister Gallery is pleased to present our first exhibition of 2011, a group show featuring 15 artists, titled “Unfamiliar Territories”.

This exhibit brings together a group of artists that have a common ground of questioning our perceptions of the world within their work. Through modifying, investigating, and engaging in exploration for the purpose of discovery, each artist has formulated their own unique system of communication. The work in this show treads a fine line on the border of reality and imagination, incorporating elements and attributes from both sides. Visual language for these artists is not only a transmission of personal culture, but also a window into alternative views of the universe.

The artists exhibiting in “Unfamiliar Territories”, view the world through a combination of comparisons, calculations, schemes, concepts and recipes. They take the familiar and the obvious, and through a process of reformulation, present it as curious and unfamiliar. This reinterpretation defines itself as a pure, non-functional object introduced into the world through the mind and eyes of the artist.
