The Rainbow Show
Featuring Adam Eddy, Susan Klein, & Joshua Lynn
Exhibit dates: April 13 – May 19, 2018
Location: Main Gallery
Redux Contemporary Art Center is thrilled to present The Rainbow Show, a group exhibition highlighting the work of Charleston based artists Adam Eddy, Susan Klein, and Joshua Lynn. The Rainbow Show plays on the thematic nature of the color spectrum as represented in three individual practices. The symbol of a rainbow, and its associated connotations, is presented in varying forms throughout the exhibition, allowing the viewer to freely connect with the beauty and playfulness of this iconic symbol.
Rainbows are ubiquitous symbols used to signify equality, hope, and connectivity. They appear in our contemporary culture as icons for a secular spirituality that counters the bleak information loop of news media. Rainbows offer no decisive palette but insist on fluidity and interpretation. These values offer alternative paths to the current binary political expectations in America.
Adam Eddy, Susan Klein, and Joshua Lynn use the symbol as a gesture of child-like hope and a starting point for creative exploration. In a time of increasing spiritual and social confusion, art offers a possible route for creating meaning and community. The works in this exhibition encourage viewers to take fun seriously and to imagine possible realities where creative experimentation is encouraged.
