Exhibition Date: Tuesday, October 26, 2010 - Saturday, January 29, 2011
ROY G BIV Gallery for Emerging Artists presents Time-Sensitive, an exhibition at the OSU Urban Arts Space from October 2010 – January 2011. ROY G BIV welcomed Ola Ståhl as juror for the show.
Time-Sensitive features artists who explore the idea of the ephemeral. Ephemeral artworks fade, disappear, or simply “end” due to the materials or time that they inhabit.
The artworks in Time-Sensitive explore the impermanent and the transitory, as well as disintegration and decay. These investigations will hopefully encourage momentary (yet lasting) impressions on the viewer.
