“Bad news:” a phrase that is both precise and foreboding. It precedes information ranging from mundane to tragic, but in the moment before the thought is complete, it elicits a fear of the inevitable. The works in this exhibition challenge and provoke us, whether it be through an apocalyptic fantasy or sense of dread inspired by our current climate. Some works find the humor in bad news, while others reveal important truths. The artists in this exhibition seek out some beauty in bad news while charging us to question the information around us.
