DESCRIPTION

Present Tense brings together the work of six artists using sculpture, video and photography to explore personal narratives that vary in topics from gathering resources from loved ones and managing the physical residue of past relationships to questioning luxury driven consumerism. The works rely on the shared vocabulary of gender and together express moments of confusion and clarity as the artists navigate the balance between the seemingly concrete yet rapidly shifting position of their assumed societal roles. Present Tense will feature new works by Shannon Duncan, Rosine Kouamen, Emily Peacock, Britt Ragsdale, Arnea Williams and Sapphire Williams.
