Artists Jenny Hata Blumenfield and Rosie Quick interrogate our understanding of space. This Features installation is established in dialogue with Mana Contemporary exhibition, I Shall Tell Only What I Want to Tell, inviting viewers to contemplate preconceived notions of our environment. Depth is flattened, perspective is distorted, and existing spaces are reconceptualized.
Hata Blumenfield and Quick join Decentralized for an opening reception and discussion, providing insight into their emerging practices. The artists present their work through a conversation touching on process, meditation, and imagined space.
Works on view are available for purchase.
