Unbound Perspectives

Unbound Perspectives - Exploring Mediums and the World at Agora Gallery

 

Agora Gallery presents Unbound Perspectives, a group exhibition highlighting work that presents reality with heightened aesthetic possibilities. Bringing together no fewer than eighteen artists, the exhibition is an eclectic mixture of photography, painting, and sculpture. Some pieces present subtler, updated forms of surrealism: familiar objects and figures taken out of context and placed into new environments, or classic art historical tableaux with present-day icons swapped in. Other pieces are rooted in abstraction and approach the familiar from the opposite end of the spectrum. There are investigations into color, line, and texture, all as they relate to depicting things from the real world – and especially, imagining them differently. Every work in Unbound Perspectives shares the tension of seeing foreign elements integrated with everyday things. The exhibition celebrates the new and the unexpected, with eyes forward but always carrying knowledge of the past.

 

Unbound Perspectives will be on view from August 26th – September 15th, 2016. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, September 1st, from 6pm to 8pm. Admission is free.
