Opening Reception: Saturday, October 6, 6-9 PM
Thomas Hunter Project Space is proud to present Shift/Fix(ed), a series of multimedia collaborative works by MFA students from UMass Dartmouth College of Visual and Performing Arts from October 6 to October 31.
What do the words Shift/Fix(ed) imply to contemporary art practice? We are told our political, environmental, and social worlds are shifting, in flux—perhaps on the precipice of change & revolution. The Postmodernist tradition, where the disruption of norms and critical stance in society was a given - is now under severe attack. Questions about the mutability of truth (fixed or un-fixed) permeate the culture. Are we talking to or at one another? Paired artists form a discourse in the production of wall based works in diptych format that considers the rough dynamics of the world they live, how their practice navigates (shifts) and/or participates in the public space. Curated by UMassD professors Jim Lawton and Janine Wong.
