The artists featured in Overloaded respond to the frenzied realities of the Information Age with translations of the everyday that mix synthetic materials, pop culture references, a desire for human connection, and the beauty of surfaces. From the expansive to the pared back, from the interactive to the layered, their works explore cultural histories, family narratives, intracellular processes, personal transformation, and field notes and color studies on friendship. Additional ephemera from each artist’s studio provides context and insight into their practices, as well as a reflection on how they filter the world through a distinctive artistic lens. With a reading from New York Times Magazine critic-at-large Wesley Morris on “The Year We Obsessed Over Identity.”
