DESCRIPTION

This exhibition presents work by Sarah Bapst, Katarina Burin, Mark Cooper, and Luther Price—the finalists for the James and Audrey Foster Prize, a biennial award recognizing artists of exceptional promise from Greater Boston. Selected for the innovation, conceptual strength, and skillful execution of their work, the finalists all share a confident artistic approach: a sign of breakthroughs to come.

Sarah Bapst's sculpture and works-on-paper explore how to approach the arbitrariness of art in making decisions about form and content. Katarina Burin's drawings, structures, installations, and collages are influenced by the documentation and circulation of historical architecture and design imagery. Mark Cooper's paintings and sculptures—made with fiberglass, rice paper, painting, silk screen, and varying images and patterns—explore dualities of culture and meaning. Known for his work as a filmmaker, Luther Price creates handmade slides using found footage and raw materials he then manipulates and reassembles in a study of dying technology.
