curated by Paul Ha and Andrea Scott
March 29 – May 12, 1996
“Oh to live on Sugar Mountain with the barkers and the colored balloons
you can’t be twenty on Sugar Mountain though you’re thinking that you’re leaving there too soon”
Sugar Mountain examines the peculiar space between adolescence and adulthood, which is defined more by attitude than actual age. Whether raucous, restless or restrained, these photographs, paintings and videos exist somewhere between innocence and experience. The artists in the exhibition cull from personal experience, as well as the movies, television
and rock ‘n roll to conjure a time that may exist only in our imagination.
