where is the power is a poetic collection of works that challenge conventions and undermine expectations through subtle gestures, associations, layered content, materials, language, proximity, scale, humor, personal and collective memory, intervention, presence and longing. The exhibition focuses on works by an impressive array of artists that speak to a need for thoughtful contemplation.
Artists in the exhibition include Alejandro Cesarco, Liam Gillick, Mona Hatoum, Robert Kinmont, Glenn Ligon, Josiah McElheny, Cornelia Parker, Kris Pierce, Chris Powell, Fred Sandback, Valeska Soares, Richard Wentworth, and John Wilcox.
