DESCRIPTION
Living now, in the Anthropocene, the 22 artists whose work comprise this exhibition make resonant objects that appear as if glimpsed in a review mirror, from some time in the future. They create a physical presence of what will be a disappeared past, conduits for assessment and critique of current culture in the form of fossils. Like Paleolithic relics, they are largely cast—in glass, metal, plaster and resins. The multi-media three-dimensional works in the exhibition can be organized into two loose divisions: Corporal/Effigies explore our bodily presence and Cultural/Fossils, reflect our technological present.
