MARN is excited to present “Catch the 22”, MARN’s Annual Members Exhibition running January 20 to March 20, 2022 within the MARN ART + CULTURE HUB.   

“Catch the 22” showcases the thriving studio practices of over 100 visual art CREATIVE / CREATIVE BUSINESS members located in Southeast Wisconsin. The exhibition title “Catch the 22” is derived from the term “catch-22”, a paradoxical situation from which an individual cannot escape because of contradictory rules or limitations. The term was coined by Joseph Heller in his 1961 novel “Catch-22”. However, the term is slightly altered replacing the ‘dash’ with ‘the’ and in turn, implying a strife toward resolve. 

Mediums encompass video, photography, sculpture, painting, mosaic, fibers, mixed media and more. Themes and concepts include voter oppression, paradox, unexpected outcomes, push and pull, duality, absurdity, and the strife toward capturing time.
