STIFF | Cade Center Gallery at Anne Arundel Community College
March 6 – April 11, 2018 in Arnold, Maryland
Public Reception: 5-7pm on Wednesday, March 28 (with coordinator’s talk at 5:30pm)
STIFF brings together six contemporary artists in an exhibit curated by René Treviño. Felons might face STIFF sentences; a STIFF knee joint is inflexible. One might STIFF a waiter for bad service; a dead body is called a STIFF. The word STIFF in the title of the exhibit references arousal, rigidity, hardness. The work all has a palpable sense of heat and energy. These six artists assert themselves into complicated conversations about race, identity, gender and sexuality, yet these works have a sense of humor (the way sex is sometimes funny) and a visual splendor.
Featured Artists: Damon Arhos, Cat Gunn, Nathan Miller, Isabelle Schipper, and Wickerham & Lomax.
