On the Distant Horizon at BLAM

Screen Shot 2016-08-07 at 12.57.47 PMCurated by Joe Wolek, “On the Distant Horizon” explores notions of mirage, something that is simultaneously there and not there. The exhibit focuses on interpretations of chimera, illusion, delusion, hallucination, specter; a potential figment of the imagination; a castle in the air.

Artists in “On the Distant Horizon” include: Nadege Monchera Baer, Dani Dodge, Andrew Freeman, Todd Gray, Michael Isenberg, Ben Jackel, Alanna Marcelletti, Hanna Mattes, Jesus Max, Joey Morris, Ruben Ortiz-Torres, Julia Paull, Max Rain, Christopher Rauschenberg, Shelby Roberts, Amy Russell, Mitchell Syrop, Augusta Wood, Kim Ye and Kent Young.
