Ephemeral Eternity: Memory, Ritual, and Myth in a time of Dissolution
March 5th – May 1st
Artists: Robin Bernat , Jessica Scott Felder, Karen Tauches, Wendy Phillips.
Ephemeral Eternity: Memory, Ritual, and Myth in a time of Dissolution is an exhibition focusing on the transience of the human condition, and the power of myth, memory and ritual to forestall vanishing and contested histories and identities. This exhibition examines the acts humanity uses to hold onto beloved memories and contested histories ranging from the personal to the political and the mythic. How we remember the past and process its influence on our present has always been and will always be a part of the human condition. How we record, protect and keep what is beloved becomes the basis for our rituals and myths, for our faiths and our archiving. The artists in this exhibition work in many forms of media and were chosen due to varied ways they represent our physical and emotional histories.
