This exhibition represents points of culmination and crisis that overlap within the art-making practices of Amanda Elise Bowles, Daniel Giles, Esau McGhee, and Matt Morris. The intensive research with which they have been engaged during their tenure in the Department of Art Theory and Practice situates the resulting artworks in a climate of rigorous critical thinking and a negotiation of today’s art worlds. Variously reflexive, incisive and contemplative, this exhibition poses fresh lines of inquiry into material conditions that give shape to our present and future.
