Upside Downturn is about abstraction across a broad spectrum of definitions for that word. A discovery of shared artistic values that span the various disparities distinguishing each of the artists in the show. It’s a kind of apparent empathy between object makers despite unlikely conditions, intentions and contrasting backgrounds. It is a strange but specific cross section of working methods that together seem to be asking the right questions at a moment when financial and political uncertainties coupled with unbridled technological proliferations, are omnipresent.
