Summer, Piping Down The Valleys Wild
June 28 – September 8, 2012
Stux Gallery is pleased to present a group show, Summer, “Piping Down the Valleys Wild”. The title takes after the first line of William Blakeʼs 1789 Songs of Innocence, the pioneering suite of poems that rethinks Miltonʼs states of “Paradise” and the “Fall” as presented in Paradise Lost. This show of 16 artists presents a timely update on the discussion of the sustainability of innocence in the contemporary world.
Participating artists: Halim Al Karim, James Busby, Sokari Douglas Camp, Miki Carmi, Steven Charles, Margaret Evangeline, Maimouna Guerresi, Akikazu Iwamoto, Anna Jóelsdóttir, Aaron Johnson, Kosyo Minchev, Shimon Okshteyn, Kathy Ruttenberg, Ruud van Empel, Barnaby Whitfield, Manabu Yamanaka.
