"Take Up Space" presents abstraction as it travels across floors, hangs on walls, and is suspended above stairwells. Abstraction runs throughout this space, exploring and becoming territory. The works – mostly paintings – are results of artists’ projects that consider the relevance and power of abstraction’s possibilities.
The works in these galleries respond: to architecture, to history, to color, to taste, to edges, to time, and to our sociopolitical climate. They are explorations of form. They require us to notice their experimentation. They charge us to take the color, shapes, and scale of their structures into account.
Artists include Sarah Cain, Lita Albuquerque, Zachary Armstrong, Sarah Crowner, Tomory Dodge, Tomashi Jackson, Pamela Jorden, Odili Donald Odita, and Jackie Saccoccio.
