Exhibition Reception: Friday July 28, 5–8 PM
Presented in cooperation with BRIDGES WATERLOO 2017
PASSAGE + OBSTACLE features a selection of work by multidisciplinary area artists Patrick Cull, Paul Dignan, Laura De Decker, Soheila Esfahani, and Andrew James Smith. Sharing a rigorous approach to materials and subject matter, their artworks parallel Bridges' stated goal to explore "mathematical connections in art, music, architecture, education and culture”. The exhibition sets out to complement and expand on the theme by contrasting subtle and overt links between the use of geometry, pattern, and optical effects across mediums ranging from painting and installation to digital media. Using the bridge as a metaphor, the artworks can be appreciated as a means of getting from A to B by overcoming obstructions, whether perceptual or otherwise.
Exhibition is free and open to both conference visitors and the public
