An exhibition by Abbey Blake | Open March 1-30

From the artist:
“Definitions of futile:

  1. Incapable of producing any useful result; pointless.

  2. Occupied with trifles: FRIVOLOUS

Futile is an exhibition of objects and structures that re-contextualize border objects and their power. This exhibition is not an overt liberal or activist stance on parties, policy or government. It is a humanitarian approach and manifestation of a future that chooses love and togetherness over ‘otherness’ and separation. Through absurdity, color and form I am promoting hope above hate as well as humor above fervor.

My hope for Futile is to project our common interests of goodness and togetherness in the greater Iowa City community, regardless of conflicting views. My motives are to question our futile separations from one another and our arbitrary acts and constructions of power, value and otherness. I would like to contribute to the foundations that build up communities and diverse understanding rather than construct the barriers that keep us apart. "
