Fall Arts Celebration Reception: September 10, 2015
Welcome to a beautiful world, unsettling in its vision of personal isolation, but collectively bound by the small comfort of knowing that we are all alone. Through painting, photography, sculpture, and video this convincing aesthetic of anxious beauty shows us a strange contemporary familiarity in our collective darkness.

A collaborative project between the GVSU Art Gallery and the De Pree Art Center and Gallery at Hope College, this exhibition turns a mirror to our world, examining individual isolation, political repression, and collective ennui during the decline of the industrial age, an age in which people are simultaneously singular and collective beings.

Thirty-two singularly powerful works by artists including Louise Bourgeois, Gilbert & George, Richard Long, Edward Burtynsky, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Erwin Wurm, Erwin Olaf, James Aldridge, Salvador Dali, Tony Cragg, Marcel Dzama, Matthew Day Jackson, and Ruud van Empel among others allow viewers to reflect on past mistakes while reveling in progressive poetics.
