Possession includes internationally renowned artists, including David LaChapelle, Katsuyo Aoki, Erik Park and AVAF, who re-purpose and re-theorize past aesthetic traditions as they address contemporary pop life, fantasy and morality. Referencing Rococo beauty and surface, the artworks in this exhibition reference themes of youthful frivolity, artifice and pleasure, while delighting the eye and mind. What lies beneath the glimmering surfaces of these artworks, however, is powerful content that asks contemporary viewers to consider big questions about life and death, purpose, values and what comes next. An artist reception will be held at 5 to 7 p.m. April 24.
