DESCRIPTION

In Other Words is a group exhibition that looks at language and its capacity to clarify and confuse, convene and separate, inspire and discourage. Language can excite our spirit, comfort our feelings, and inform our intellect; it can also extinguish desire, destroy confidence, and cloud perception. By exploring a range of areas concerning the influence and evolution of language in our lives — the impact of technology, the obscurity of industry-specific terminology, the psychological internalization of language, and the recontexutalization of language — the artists in this exhibition demonstrate through a diversity of media the many ways in which we strive to communicate to each other.
