The Sublime Revisited @ Ann Street Gallery

Installation view (Rachael Wren on right) of The Sublime Revisited @ Ann Street Gallery

The Sublime Revisited examines how contemporary artists explore the diverse and sometimes conflicting ideas of the sublime, with themes in relation to the awesome, the beautiful, terror, nature, technology, transcendence, and altered states. Works on view will provide a philosophical and cultural context for discourse around the sublime in art as it has evolved over time from the writings of Longinus, Burke and Kant to present day.

The exhibit features works by: Toby Barnes, Dennis Cady, Bryan Christie, Liz Ensz, Snow Yunxue Fu, Abhi Ghuge, Aron Johnston, Christopher Lonegan, 
George Lorio, Caitlin McCormack, Kyle McKenzie, Sophia Narrett, Chee Wang Ng, Eric Norby, Jaeman Shin, Raphael Fenton-Spaid, Ana Vizcarra Rankin, Rachael Wren, and William Ruller.

The Sublime Revisited is curated by Virginia Walsh, Director of the Ann Street Gallery.
