Caught in a Dream transforms the gallery into an inviting, inspiring space that encourages viewers to explore the ways in which artists weave ambitions, memories and desires into their work. Evoking the Surrealist Movement of the 1920s, when artists created dream-influenced work with the goal of liberating themselves from rational and restrictive thought, Caught in a Dream celebrates the artists’ desire to investigate new possibilities within their practice and to reimagine their world unrestricted by present-day realities. In reflecting upon the boundaries between craft and fine art, the culture of consumption, the prevalence of technology, crises of capitalism, and the role of identity, the artists engage in meditative processes and radical acts of dreaming. By these acts they question their present state and generate new possibilities in order to manifest alternate outcomes.
“A dream you dream alone is only a dream, a dream you dream together is a reality.”
– John Lennon
