Narrate / Withhold

Modernism declared that narrative had no place in the visual arts. But every work of art tells a story, even if it's only the story of its own making. Each artist in this room explores the storytelling capacity of art. Some present complex and carefully planned storylines, performed by the artist, by others, by the viewer or by a combination of all three. Others offer cryptic fragments that encourage us to complete and enact the narrative in our own minds.
