Title: Melting Point
Artist:
Dates: Jan 11th - Feb 10th
Time: Check Venue listings.

As things heat up they eventually reach a point of paradigm shift: the MELTING POINT. Curated by Nick Dong & Johanna Poethig, participating artists respond to this shift in multiple ways: as a metaphor for climate change; global politics; sexual abuse; love and emotion; construction of boundaries; racism; merging of cultures that fuse into new diverse forms; archaeological layers; and art that literally melts. In the spirit of exploration and experimentation, this exhibition includes installation, painting, sculpture, video and performance.
