    Horror Vacui and AnT Sculpture and Design

    2424 Franklin Ave E
    Minneapolis, MN 55406
    Call: (612) 339-8007

    Opening Reception: Friday, October 11, 6 - 8 pm

    Horror Vacui: Across the Margins is a celebration of visual excess, as much as it is also an examination of it and a reflection of our world. Every artist in the exhibition embraces visual texture, high contrast, and chromatic saturation to express layers of content. Any sampling of their surface work rewards the viewer with a tome of formal or narrative dialogue. The physical space will be divided into two spaces that will work in concert. An internal chamber, quiet with negative space, will provide mental and physical room for reflection. This “room” will be bounded by a narrow and visually dense external hallway, with walls bearing patterns designed by each maker. The works are paired with the intention of forcing a deliciously crowded conversation.
