Description

This group exhibition celebrates the concept of love and relationships with artists working before and during the digital era. The work illustrates love as both memory, honor, hope, call to action, and a global changemaker.

Artists in this exhibition focus on love past, love lost, love hoped for, love lived in a way that both honors relationships and propels the power of love beyond two, beyond power structures, into a world where multiplicity and non hierarchical structure creates action and change on a larger scale. While love may start with individuals, these artists examine their love not subjugated nor confined by any preconceived ideals or prescribed structures, but love for itself as a verb, a noun, an emotion, and a driving force.
