The Art Center Highland Park (TACHP) exhibits work that breaks down the boundaries of inside and outside. As space can be defined by a physical separation, without or beyond an enclosure, artists here redefine the confines of what constitutes inside and outside. A physical wall, a border, or skin are forms that outline and delineate between inside and outside, acting as protection. Our skin protects us from germs, our homes protect us from weather. However, when we think metaphysically or spiritually, how do we describe those separations? In this compilation of artists, juried by Michelle Stone & Susan Smith Trees, the work represents the ability to break down barriers, revealing what is both inside and outside, blurring the delineations between them.
