Exhibition Dates: December 13, 2017- January 21, 2018

Opening Reception: Wednesday, December 13 from 5:30- 8:30 PM

Lichtundfire is pleased to announce Past as Prologue or the Effects of Modernism on Contemporary Art, an exhibition of works in various media, expressing the continuation of a vocabulary shaped by modernism but recontextualized by a contemporary perspective and experience.

The artists in this exhibition are joined by a visual practice and dialogue beyond Postmodernism and beyond a retrospective aesthetic that tends to stop at the Contemporary.

Shaped, burned and sharpened by an individual approach to art historical references the work demonstrates a will to simultaneously adhere to a profound period in art-history while confidently placing itself in the center of a contemporary conversation.

With a particular emphasis on line and color, this exhibition delivers a strong argument that the past is inevitably the Shakespearean prologue, and it is therefore on the artists to consciously close the circle with their own individual deliberation and assertion.

Past as Prologue is on view at Lichtundfire Wednesday through Saturday noon-6 pm; and Sunday 1-6 pm.
