IN//OUT explores information overload in today’s society
February 5 – March 19, 2016. Opening reception: Friday, February 5, 5–9 pm.
Milwaukee, WI – Walker’s Point Center for the Arts is pleased to announce IN//OUT, a group exhibition exploring both the advantage and burden of information overload in today’s world. The exhibition features work by emerging artists Lilia Banrevy, Peter Klett, Kate Klingbeil, James Pederson, Miguel Ramirez, Lucas Ruminski and Sandra Schmidt, and curated by Sean Heiser.
Art practices today are met with boundless access to information. The Internet, historical contexts, well-scouted mediums, and an excess of cultural ephemera grant a large amount of choices to art-making strategies. IN//OUT considers the image and object-making tendencies of a group of young artists, and how they manifest through a diverse range of work –- in conceptual frameworks, formal ideas, and technical execution.
In context of each other, the works display the eclectic modes through which this freedom to information reveals itself-through the symbols, tropes, and references that seep freely and ahistorically though the practices of these artists. IN//OUT is informed by an interest towards this disjunctive yet intelligible state.
The exhibition opens with a reception on Friday, February 5, 5–9 pm, and runs through March 19. Gallery hours are Monday though Saturday 12-5 pm and by appointment. Press and special preview will be held Thursday, February 4, 12–5 pm.
