Continental Drift brings together the work of seven Colorado-based artists, (including Scott Johnson) each of whom explores the idea of place in diverse and thoughtful ways. Ranging from specific studies of both historical sites and contemporary ruins to more abstract or conceptual examinations of space, these artists demonstrate a collective preoccupation with place and setting. While some seek to unearth a specific history in Colorado, others are interested in the ideas and objects that define sites and establish the contours of spaces we all inhabit. This exhibition will include works in film, photography, sculpture, painting, drawing and installation that reflect this singular idea in manifold ways.
