Hypotheses

Exhibition Dates: September 11 – October 31*
Reception: Friday, October 8, 7pm
Juror: Sue Wrbican 

 

Target Gallery presents a new group exhibition Hypotheses. This exhibition is all about the process of intellectual experimentation and the exploration of new ideas and techniques in an artist’s practice.

The goal of this theme is to create a dialogue of work in conversation with each other about embarking outside one’s traditional boundaries of understanding. Whether it be based in cerebral subject matters or experimenting with a new technique or conceptual idea, each work in the exhibition will embody this concept of questioning and discovery.
