How the Light Gets In: Recent Work by Seven Former Core Fellows
October 10, 2014–January 11, 2015
Organized by Mary Leclère and Lily Cox-Richard
Featuring works by Mequitta Ahuja, Vasco Araújo, Nick Barbee, Steffani Jemison, Karyn Olivier, Fraser Stables, and Jeff Williams
This exhibition presents the work of seven former Core fellows, in homage to the building that has been the program's home since its inception. Not bound by a specific theme, this exhibition reflects the diverse and varied practices of the artists who have come through the country's premier postgraduate residency program and have had studios in the Glassell building. To cultivate an artistic practice within a glass house involves both visibility and vulnerability, risk and reward. To see these practices sustained over time is exhilarating. There is a crack in everything—that's how the light gets in.
