Relapse is a collection of Louisiana Tech’s Senior artists attempting to assert their identity within contemporary society while navigating difficult ideologies and beliefs. The show opens in the [TVAC GALLERIES] on May 3rd, 2021, and features works that question social norms to prompt introspection within the viewer. Each artist presents their unique perspective to examine how personal choices can affect those around us, as well as ourselves. Each work invites the viewer to reflect on their own identity on a personal and social level.
Manipulating form and function to communicate the absurdities of life to the audience, the ensemble of artists reflect on how the last several years have individually impacted their art-making processes, as well as the way they interact with others. “By exploring different materials and mediums”, the group notes, “we are all pushing toward something better, and in a true sense of rehabilitation, are working to restore something that has been completely torn apart.”
The show features a multitude of works spanning mediums including ceramics to digital art to paintings. Artworks will be exhibited inside the Taylor Visual Arts Center’s galleries, which are open Monday through Friday, 9 am – 4pm.
The group describes the show as “art that challenges social standards and offers reprieve from situations that once held claim to one’s independence, including our own susceptibility to self-destructive vices”.
