This show embraces the power of sculpture to re-define space. Using natural, vernacular, and experimental materials, these artists investigate abstraction, materiality, figuration, drawing connections between space, geometric forms, and political critique. Works range from surreal re-imaginings of the body, to post-minimalism.
