Curated by Cynthia Nourse Thompson, Director, MFA Studio Art / MFA Book Arts + Printmaking and Associate Professor at the University of the Arts, Anguish is a visceral portrait of isolation, desire, and remorse. Removed from the shadows, a collection of international artists present a visual dialogue that is strikingly raw. Artists include Janine Antoni, Nils Ericson, Louise Bourgeois, Anna Tsantir, Oscar Muñoz, Roberto Mannino, Rosemary Laing, Anders Krisar, Gail Deery, Jenny Holzer, Markus Hansen, Donna Smith, Carson Fox, and Martha McDonald.
