Artists regularly transit between different worlds, be they inherited, imposed, physical, or philosophical. Betwixt and/or Between seeks to illuminate how these different vital points are connected within the artists, their practice, and ultimately the viewer. Art communicates by unfolding itself into our conscious and unconscious awareness – suggesting that meaning cannot be universally prescribed, as art resides in intersecting spaces of in-between. This exhibition explores interlocking sets of deliberations that range from formal to stylistic, narrative to personal, and sociological to historical, inviting us into considerations that go beyond the surface.
Betwixt and/or Between is made possible by support from the Pasadena Art Alliance the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles.
