ARTSTREET WHITE BOX GALLERY PRESENTS ‘THIRST’
Aug. 27 - Oct. 1
ArtStreet White Box Gallery
Opening Reception: Aug. 27, 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.
THIRST engages what it is that we desire, that we long for, encouraging viewers to consider the desires that are so deeply embedded in us that they can be difficult to access. Beyond money, good health, or novel experiences, THIRST invites us to consider the ways in which we substitute what we really desire with temporary and unsustainable comforts. Hosting six world premiere installations annually, the White Box Gallery is dedicated to work that challenges social, industrial, cultural and academic perspectives. This year’s focus is on our daily climate — and our elemental responses to our environment. Creative Lead Andrew Hendrixson is an artist and writer whose recent work includes collaborations with incarcerated youth and an experimental art project that seeks to create conversational spaces in homes across the country about the role of the arts.
