Reassessment is a dynamic, multifaceted process; ignited by a need, it requires a reflection of the past, a new perspective on the present, and a desire to shift forward. Reassessment calls on the individual to authentically explore impact, search inward, and be vulnerable in exploring one’s psychological, physical, and environmental state. This mirrors the artist’s mindset. Motivated by curiosity, artists seek to identify vulnerabilities, push beyond doubt, take risks, examine the past, and be in direct conversation with the current climate. The process is delicate. Like an abrasion on the skin, there is a scraping or wearing away layer—by—layer and with this breakdown and repair comes renewal.
"Since the onset of the pandemic, many of us have faced moments of uncertainty, unexpectedness, and flux. These experiences can be vulnerable, but can also spark joy, courage, and resilience. This exhibition is an opportunity to explore work by artists who have made radical shifts in their practice—from exploring entirely new challenges in materials and techniques, to confronting content around personal and cultural identity."
