La Vie en Rose

In an interdisciplinary installation spanning sculpture, light, sound, and media works, Chad States ruminates on the difficulties of finding and sustaining joy in dark times. Central to this exploration is the 1977 Grace Jones cover of the 1946 post-war ballad by Edith Piaf; the song and exhibition each invite us into a unique space between hope/despair, pleasure/pain, and humiliation/praise.

Gallery talk with the artist Aug 3rd at 5:00pm and opening reception at 6:00pm.
