Some of the most innovative artists working outside the picture place will come together this April at Agora Gallery in Spatial Fluidity, a new collective exhibition. A celebration of three-dimensionality in all its forms, Spatial Fluidity interrogates how a piece of art should exist in the world. Is it purely a visual entity? Does it enter the viewer’s space? Is it static or does it change as the viewer moves?
The exhibition includes nine artists. There is a wide range of mixed-media work, ranging from pieces that are subtly textured to canvases that forcefully protrude and recede into so-called “real” space. There are collages that intermingle newspaper clippings and photographs, or defy expectations by coating everything in a reflective glaze. There are also single-media paintings that emphasize the physical aspects of their material, such as the plastic quality of acrylic. Much of the art is abstract, so that the viewer may focus on broader visual sensations rather than put together three-dimensionality with a representational narrative.
Spatial Fluidity opens April 1, 2017 and runs through April 21, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, April 6 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.
