Exhibitions: Bad Mirror

A two-part exhibition presented by Monira Foundation in partnership with The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts.


EFA Studios and Monira Foundation are pleased to present a show in two parts highlighting the breadth of contemporary practices and links between their resident artists. The first part, at Monira Foundation, was titled In Retrospect and presented works relating to memory and self-reflection. It featured portraits and testaments looking back in time and looking out from the present. The second part replays these themes and warps them as if in a Bad Mirror. Substitutions of different artists or different works by the same artists expand the grouping and allow for more avenues of exploration.
