“I Dread to Think…”, curated by Liz Blum | January 13–March 19, 2017
In the new Mills Gallery exhibition I Dread To Think…, curator Liz Blum integrates varied reflections on the ambiguous, multifarious emotions and feelings surrounding the state of fear, highlighting aspects of inner paranoia and anxiety as well as pointing to external influences—from political inducements, erosions of privacy and the persuasive media loop that seems to nurture our feeling of being unsafe.
Liz Blum is an independent curator and artist working in Massachusetts. The 13 artists selected for this show are Amy Archambault, Ingrid Burrington, Molly Dilworth, Sandra Erbacher, Will Gill, Susanna Hertrich, Damien Hoar de Galvan, Steve Locke, Nicole Maloof, Lauren McCarthy, Lucas Pope, Alex Preston and Tabitha Soren.
