This exhibition is a group show curated by emerging artist/curator Gabriel Hopson and including artists:
Each piece in this show mirrors an undertaking, which begins in one instant and ends far into the future or perhaps never. An idea goes through an infinite number of transformations: picking up associations, canceling some out and – hopefully, eventually - becoming realized in public. Still, in many ways that is just the beginning of the journey.
The show will include mixed media work by Takuya Hayaki, an “anti-event” by William Hempel, post-modern minimalism by Gabriel Hopson, interactive art by Cora Kobischka, a Mylar scroll by Allison Yano, musical performance on 60s keyboard by Brian Chillemi and a multimedia performance by Caitlin Baucom.
Key words: grief, remembrance, technology, local but contemporary globalized perspectives, the external vs. the internal world, religion, phenomena, metaphysics, the muse, migration, compassion, undertaking, associations.

Remembrance is how we keep ourselves
Inside ourselves with the people we love.
Together we sing
Or apart we blow dryly away
Like grass or thin branches
In our hearts it shines
Even though our faces remain clear.
The water rises,
But we find warm places to survive.
There is no place
Here but we glide
Into the sky.
It does not create a lot of problems.
-Gabriel Hopson, artist/curator
