Press Release

How to Feel Real is a a group exhibition about authenticity in a virtual age including work by Stacey Alickman, Kellie Bornhoft, Linda Leslie Brown, and Hilary Tolan, curated by Shana Dumont Garr. Simple, essential things such as dirt, trees, animals, and other human beings become astonishing in the context of increased amounts of time spent looking at screens. Visual art helps us scrutinize who we are becoming a full generation into the existence of the internet and the common ownership of smartphones. The artists use a range of media, including painting, sculpture, video, and kinetic installation, to talk about sincerity and to point out the rituals and systems that either keep us from feeling human or bring us back.
