As an anniversary project, we have opted to invite a roster of emerging and mid-career artists who have not yet exhibited withPLATFORMTogether, these exhibits offer insights and ruminations on failed love and thwarted dreams, as well as an overall malaise and melancholy stemming from our current climate steeped in popular culture. Stay tuned for the forthcoming publication featuring artist pages from all involved, as well as curatorial texts and essays by invited contributors.
