"pretty/tough"     

January 21 – March 5, 2020

Lee Gallery

In the current milieu of technological advance, information is distributed at an incessant pace and purposefully calculated for swift and continued re-consumption. “pretty /tough” examines the ways in which artists look beyond the facade to explore the by-products and effects of a globally connected world. Works in the exhibit investigate the seemingly traditional roles of nature, culture and the built environment but peer in from the edges defining alternative narratives to the conventional conditions of domestic, digital, economic and environmental histories.
