Now. Here. This. was an 18-month project that collected artists’ responses to their physical locations and sought to reconcile various experiences of “place.” Artistic practice is an extension of daily life, knowledge and resources–whether an artist’s habitat is a choice, a natural path, forced, or born out of necessity.
The project arose from our desire to mine our local communities for intelligent, provocative, mindful work that best reflects our sensibilities as artists and curators–and to share it with each other and the public to promote visual and collaborative relationships and conversations. The bulk of the exhibition is currently online, expanding the idea of location further to allow the work of global artists to reside in one place. Please stay tuned for a forthcoming catalog in 2013.
