|Propositions is an exhibition curated by stephen garrett dewyer and features works by Neal Reinalda, Ding Ren, Glenn Shrum and Elena Volkova at Area 405, a not-for-profit and artist-run gallery in Baltimore, MD. Propositions exhibits works that investigate the function of propositions. The absence of spatial qualifications in a proposition means that a proposition locates a placeless space. A proposition identifies its subject with a space always-already in transition. Artists in propositions produce works that locate in a liminal, third space of transition from the everyday to the uncanny and vice versa; the application of boundaries to boundless space and vice versa; semblance to dissemblance and vice versa; and, between the interval of light becoming shadow and vice versa. Propositions intends to locate works within the present that negate certain ends in occupation.
12 – 3 pm Sundays: Regular gallery hours
