Imagination Land: Fantastical Narrative, Curated by Derrick Adams, will feature 10 YoungArts alumni and open coinciding with DWNTWN Art Days on Saturday, September 9th. Imagination Land: Fantastical Narrative is a group exhibition of video, sculpture, painting and performative works exploring the mechanism behind visual language, storytelling and material use associated with form and context. In a provocative manner these works embody multiple levels of complexity as they respond to and are in conversation with the way consumerism, gender roles, the environment, ceremonial ritual and the mechanics of art production play a major part in the way we see ourselves as products of our environment.
These young artists integrate these topics into their production as it enables the message in Imagination Land: Fantastical Narrative forming new ideas, concepts of external objects, fusing the possible with the impossible and allowing the viewer to witness their self-discoveries.
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 9th, from 5 – 8 p.m.
