PRELUDES is a solo exhibition, featuring recent bodies of work from Emily Culver on view from March 16 to April 20, 2024. Join us for the opening reception on March 16 from 7pm to 9pm!

“Even when current conditions echo the past, or possibly because they do, the body defies all attempts to return to a former state. Our current selves perpetually mutate and are replaced by renewed identities, making the body completely incapable of U-turns.” – Emily Culver

PRELUDES speculates on a multitude of possibilities by cataloging catalysts that hover on the cusp of becoming. The amalgamation of machinery and organic anatomy in these hybrid creations question whether transitions from the mechanical to the natural induce an elevated state of vulnerability and failure. Considering these Pinocchio-esque aspirations, Culver’s works contemplate the implications of (d)evolution and what it can mean to undergo such transformative processes.
