Open HoursFri-Sun 12-5pm
Arriving at the end of an unknown route, finishing a trail, or reaching a final destination allows us a viewpoint from which to look back at a journey. It also marks the termination of the unknown - and the conclusion of possibility.
In her upcoming solo show Sirens, Carolyn Hopkins will be presenting work made from the viewpoint of the end in order to re-examine our current climate, as well as the rise of solastalgia. In a new world of climate crisis, the global increase in far-right extremism, and a retreat toward old political values and belief systems - we find ourselves at a precarious moment in the history of not only the United States, but of human civilization. Each of these pieces acts as an outpost from the present, removed from our current landscape and positioning themselves from viewpoints of our possible futures, and endings.
