Following a Zoom artists’ reception at 5:00pm PST on October 15, 2020. This viewing room will be accessible through November 19.
The artists in A Great Intake of Breath—the title is borrowed from a painting by Alison Michaela—reflect on the world’s current experience of enforced isolation and confinement,
and on the individual as a locus for both wider societal phenomena and an intensified experience of inner space. When external stimulus is lacking, how is individual creativity—and our perception of ourselves—affected? A Great Intake of Breath—a phrase that now resonates both with the last words of George Floyd and the calamitous spread of COVID-19—is an exploration of internal landscapes; it maps out a quasi-psychedelic vision of the unconscious mind.
