Glossolalia is imagined language. Like speaking in tongues, the works in this exhibition engage with existing dialogues about representation by isolating, abstracting, combining, and inventing new vocabularies. The artists vary in their choice of materials and methods in approaching the content of their work, but all have a common objective: to create their own absorbing language that is in turn perceived, read, considered, deciphered and digested by their audience. Glossolalia is a group exhibition of works that collectively offer a play on and questioning of interpretation.
This exhibition showcases the culminating work of this year’s senior class of ARt Theory & Practice majors at Northwestern University. Featured artists include Madeline Amos, Kyle Frost, Audrey Haque, Jason Pan, Andrew Paulson, Harrison Shih, Laura Shultz, Judy Suh, Alaya Turnbough, Wendy You, and Crystal Zhang.
