NO MORE I LOVE YOUS – CREATIVE GROWTH
February 1 - March 11
Guest curator Anton Stuebner presents No More I Love Yous, an exhibition that explores how intimacy and desire are expressed through a visual language. Featuring painting, sculpture, and video from Creative Growth’s studio and archives, the exhibition highlights seven artists who offer poignant, perceptive, and often humorous meditations on how we form relationships with ourselves and others: Juan Aguilera, Casey Byrnes, Rosena Finister, Susan Janow, William Scott, Gerone Spruill, and Ron Veasey.
No More I Love Yous continues a conversation started by the late art curator, critic, and educator Leigh Markopoulos (1968–2017), a former board president and longtime champion of Creative Growth and its artists. Markopoulos’ 2010 exhibition Love Is a Stranger (titled after a 1983 song by English synth duo Eurythmics) explored the intersections between desire and disability. The upcoming exhibition is imagined as an unofficial sequel to that show; it is also a tribute to Markopoulos and her indelible impact on the Creative Growth community.
