Stewart Uoo and Jana Euler:

‘Outside Inside Sensibility

Through August 11

Stewart Uoo and Jana Euler are emblematic of an emerging group of artists whose work interrogates how the social, technological, and cultural forces at work today shape the contemporary ‘self’. In this exhibition, Uoo’s dystopic cyborg-mannequins are juxtaposed with Euler’s multilayered figurative painting within an environment design by Uoo. Seen together, the works suggest new ways of thinking about contemporary portraiture.
