Featuring the art of Sayge Carroll, Meg Murphy, Lamar Peterson, Jacob Aaron Schroeder, and Maggie Thompson
How to become lost is an exploration into the ways artists escape into the content and method of their work as a means to process, heal, and liberate–and to get closer to a truth about life in ways that cannot necessarily be seen or framed through ordinary language or experience.
This exhibition invites you to be transported into the complexity and humanity of each artists’ work and world, but also poses the question of why and what motivates someone to create: asking viewers to consider the tensions of making work in a painful, traumatic, accelerated and angering climate while holding desire for artwork to be slow, pleasurable, and meaningful.
Is this process futile? Are we allowed to enjoy our work? What privileges come with escapism? How important is it, or detrimental? How do we reclaim our space, our work, our joy?
IC: 'There is really no difference between art and prayer,' Jacob Aaron Schroeder
