Voice in the void


Voice in the void



This exhibition features artworks that confront and explore the relationship between the void space and us: the artist, the viewer, the human. A void is more than just an empty space, it can be a formal component of an artwork such as: the negative space in a sculpture, an expanse of color across a canvas, or the embodiment of a feeling. A void can also be a problem or an unknown we must all confront. It can be painful or it can be wonderful...

These 24 student artists boldly confront and search the relationship between listening and answering. This show explores this aspect of the human experience and how we express ourselves in the midst of physical or emotional absence. Our goal is for these voices to reach beyond the void.
