Some art is never meant to be completed. From December 13 to January 10, SAIC's Sullivan Galleries present No End in Sight, a multimedia exhibition that investigates perpetuity in artistic practice.

Blurring the borders between life and artistic practice, featured artworks provoke the audience to consider art as an ongoing process, as opposed to a static event. Each piece goes beyond the here and now, suggesting that an art form endures not because of its position within history, but through active methods of repetition, regeneration, and recognition of the infinite. Collectively, these works encourage the audience to reconsider their role as traditional viewer in favor of active participation in the process.

Artists showing in No End in Sight include Aviva Alter, You Are Beautiful, Marie Krane Bergman/Cream Co., Burtonwood and Holmes, Young Cho, Grayson Cox, Masaco Kuroda, Tim Louis, Fred Nocella, Tim Pannell, Josue Pellot, ks rives and Nicole Kenney, Jesse Seay and Sighn.

Curated by: Claudia Arzeno, Angela Samuels Bryant, Kelly Chen, Jenay Gordon, Joe Iverson, Alison Kleiman, Katherine Pill, Kat Ramsland, Ania Szremski, Cecila Vargas, He Wang, Jacqueline WayneGuite.

Produced in conjunction with SAIC's Curatorial Practice course
