The Shape of Memories

  • Loft Artists Association 575 Pacific Street Stamford, CT, 06902 United States (map)

Loft Artists Association in Stamford presents the 6th Annual Tri-State Jurried Exhibition.

Juror/curator, Arianne Faber Kolb, PhD created the concept for "The Shape of Memories." She states, "This exhibition explores the theme of memory and the key role it plays in art. Most artists' works, whether on a conscious or subconscious level, reflect certain personal experiences and histories. References to the past can be monumental, quotidian or intimate. Everyday objects or places take on new meaning depending on how they are interpreted or experienced. In Marcel Proust's "Remembrance of Things Past," the smell and taste of a Madeleine cake triggers a flood of memories and transports the author to another time and experience in his life. The show will explore the various mnemonic devices artists use to create thought provoking connections and commentaries on the passage of time."
