LVL3 is proud to present
, a group exhibition featuring Ben Barretto, Clare Grill, and Spencer Stucky. Barretto’s work plays with transforming kitsch accessories and aesthetics in order to recontextualize their material meaning. Delving into women’s tradition and history, Grill is influenced by family relics and photographs, and uses these objects to inform her paintings. Stucky’s interests stem from media and the translation of language and imagery within the presented context. These three artists deal with the limitations of media representation and how symbols and traditions are communicated and altered over time.
