things you can’t unthink

Walter Phillips Gallery is pleased to present the group exhibition things you can’t unthink, featuring four female artists, Sara Cwynar (New York City), Eunice Luk (Toronto), Virginia Lee Montgomery (New York City) and Erica Prince (New York City).

The exhibition speculates on conventional materials and making, emphasized through constellations of unusual and familiar objects. Curiously shaped ceramics, mirrored pools, former partitions from Yale University’s Particle Accelerator, and video coalesce in the space of the exhibition.

things you can’t unthink reflects the inconsistencies and contradictions of philosophical fields – new materialism and object-oriented ontology – which are still in flux. Works included speak to innovation, craft, history and science, as well the use of artistic materials – clay, paint, found objects and precious metals – and the ways in which they are employed in the making of artworks.

The ememo is sent out on a weekly basis every Wednesday. All news submissions must be submitted by email to fineart@umanitoba.ca before Tuesday at 4:30pm to be considered for the following week’s ememo.
