The exhibition, Grey is the Color of Theory, will compare two dynamically different art practices that share visual similarities. The exhibition will showcase how art made from different mediums and motivated by different concepts can share stylistic commonalities. This exhibition will showcase the capacity of style and value to unify and create conversations across divergent mediums and themes.
