MARN is pleased to announce “The Further We Reach, The Closer We See”, a juried exhibition featuring the work of 30 CREATIVE level MARN members located in Southeast Wisconsin running November 19, 2022 to January 22, 2023 in the MARN ART + CULTURE HUB.
Juried in collaboration with Elio Garcia, each artwork selected individually responds to the following exhibition prompt: to visualize a greater understanding of our lived reality, memory, human history, and environment by indexing the past, present, and future.
From Paleolithic cave paintings, early studies of the cosmos, to incised rock petroglyphs, humans have documented our experiences in many forms and mediums throughout history. As we strive to better understand what we call “life”, we are often asked to reach beyond what is in the forefront of our “view” and instead be cognizant of what was, while considering what is to come. Through this acknowledgement, we can recognize our futures are contingent on our pasts and presents. And that these states are all, to a degree, interwoven.
The exhibition work was selected from 105 submissions to the 2022 Call for Art: MARN Gallery – MARNmembers Exhibition that was open to submissions from MARN CREATIVE level members in good standing from October 16 – 30, 2022.
Join us for the Opening Reception Saturday, November 19 from 5-7:45PM
