Material World


March 1 - May 12, 2019

Consumerism, luxury, obsession, and materialism have been persistent concepts in society throughout history. This spring six artists explore these themes and how they relate to pop culture and societal conventions in this new exhibition called “Material World.” 

Artists featured include Joseph Cavalieri, Hyesook Choi, Cédric Ginart, Karina Guevin, Slate Grove, and Morgan Peterson.
