January 23 to February 10, 2019
The first few weeks of a new year can sometimes feel like a jumble. One looks back on the accomplishments from the previous year and evaluates tasks left undone, all while dreaming of and making plans for the future. The days are short while nights are dark and long. Equal parts stasis, uncertainty, optimism and reflection. This time of year I find myself digging around in personal collections—my books, old photos, art works. For what? Answers, a sense of meaning, new relationships? I think something like this is at play in this year’s installment of Winter Archive. It features works by Austin Eddy, John Kayser, Avantika Bawa, Matthew Craven, Jordan Sullivan, Clayton Cotterell, Christoph Ruckhäberle, Mark Mulroney and Erin O’Keefe. Disparate works pulled from previous exhibitions and book projects, all placed in a new context, a new conversation—new ground on which to start a new year.
