Interact is pleased to announce Randomland, an exhibition by 20 visual artists at The White Page gallery. The exhibition features Interact’s signature artists, whose work spans a broad range of forms and ideas. The exhibition runs October 16-22 with an Artist Showcase Reception and Artist Talk on October 19 from 3-6pm.
In 20 distinctive artistic practices, Randomland highlights the diverse material, aesthetic, and collaborative investigations that take place daily in Interact’s ceramics, fiber arts, and mixed media studios. From Peder Hagen’s depictions of Cressia, a utopian matriarchal society, to Ashlea Karkula’s highly saturated paintings of baby hot dogs, Randomland unites disparate artistic interests in the spirit of radical inclusion.
Since 1996, artists at Interact have created work that challenges perceptions of disability. Randomland is presented in conjunction with the launch of Interact’s new web store (shop.interactcenter.org), which features the work of the artists in the exhibition. The store is part of an initiative supported by the Minnesota Department of Human Services to advance the recognition of artists with disabilities locally, nationally, and internationally.
Randomland is organized by an in-house curatorial team that includes Interact artists and staff. It is presented as a part of The White Page’s new Activity Room series. Artists in the exhibition include Carl Clark, Bill Crane, Vance Diamond, Janice Essick, Peder Hagen, HML, Ingrid Hansen, Mike Harris Jr., Ashlea Karkula, Andie Kiley, Luke Lyons, Zach Mohs, Rosemary Perronteau, Lucy Picasso, John Riddle, Andrew Seymour, Bonnie Thorne, Timothy Traver, Victor Van, and Alicia Wiese.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Interact is excited to release the first issue of the Interact zine, a publication collaboratively produced by Interact artists and staff.
