About the Exhibition, Altered States of Consciousness
Inspired by an open-ended psychological term, the exhibition, Altered States of Consciousness (ASC) features fifteen artists whose work, although vast in approach, is aligned around the theme of reality versus ‘alternate’ realities. Neither utopic nor dystopic, but rather questioning, these artists explore precarious real estate, (non) identity and existentialism, technology and the effects of movement. Read more here.
