The Rounds is a duo exhibition featuring new works by current CAC HATCH 2021-22 artists-in-residence Osée Obaonrin and Nayeon Yang, and curated by Yi Cao. The Rounds captures the repeated tries, recurring counter-actions, and recursive tensions existing amid the perpetual state of motion in societies, between relationships, and within one’s mental landscape.
Jan 8 – Feb 19
Gunn’s work relies on the imagery, aesthetics, and craft traditions of the American Midwestern vernacular and investigates their ideological function in politics and for the formulation of male subjectivity. His practice mines materials for their unconscious associations and emotional potential. Woodworking and ceramics are used for their historical connection to Midwestern mythologies in an attempt to construct a counterfactual folk art, one not riddled with nostalgia but more accurate to the current state of affairs.
Jan 8 – Feb 27
DOCUMENT presents Anneke Eussen's first solo exhibition at the gallery. Eussen lives and works in the Netherlands. She studied at the Academy of Maastricht followed by a post-graduate residency at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts, Belgium.
Jan 8 – 26
(un)disclosed is an exhibition of select Fall 2020 Journal Series weavings. These weavings are an alternative to handwritten journals that document Bibbs’ day-to-day life through the intuitive use of color, textures, and material.
Jan 6 – 30
Through A New Lens is an exhibition by seven internationally-recognized iPhoneographers. The exhibit, curated by museum professional, art historian and photographer, Gina Costa, demonstrates a broad range of styles and approaches used by mobile technology.

Visitors to the exhibition will observe the incredible span of possibilities mobile technology permits.
