Infinite Histories Public Reception
This selection of lithographs from the archives of Tamarind Institute, encapsulates the power of storytelling through art to convey shared experiences. Infinite Histories positions the artist as storyteller and documentarian of the otherwise inexplicable or peculiar, the imaginative and sometimes, even, the banal. Through the examination of the often-intersecting constellation of historical record, myth, folklore and the absurd, these artists investigate and reference psychological narratives, allusions to role-playing, familiar and cultural dynamics and the language of science. These compelling works offer not only an intriguing look into an individual artist’s approach with respect to lithography, but represent just a handful of the countless (hi)stories compiled and recorded by Tamarind over its influential 50-plus years of existence.
