Work by Monroe Isenberg

Faculty member Monroe Isenberg’s solo exhibition, Remnants, is now open at the Common Ground Gallery, located at VisArtsCenter in Maryland.

“The show assembles cracking mud from Vermont and Pennsylvania, 400 lbs of water from the Delaware Estuary, a Pencil Pusher, Icelandic winter light, and music by Patsy Kline into sculpture, video, projection, and framed artwork. These elements merge into larger themes relating to complicity, absurdity, the myth of progress, cycle, silence, spirituality, and climate change. 

As a contribution to a greater, collective conversation, the work arrives through lived questions— how do we enter into greater reciprocity with the world, each other and non-human beings? How do we facilitate practices that un-sever and reimagine a future based on thrivability?”

Isenberg is a reclaimed sculpture artist and an adjunct professor at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

On view through October 18th, by appointment
Common Ground Gallery (Rockville, Maryland)
