On the surface, the exhibition features abstracted visuals of many kinds by a variety of artists. The power of Fugitive Narratives, however, lies in discovering stories hidden within the works. Each of the artists in this exhibition were chosen because they create nonrepresentational art based on personal narratives that may go unnoticed when viewing the formal elements of the artwork alone. The stories for each sculpture, painting, or installation, told in the artist’s voice, accompany the artworks to activate the viewing experience and provide a deeper understanding of the artwork.
