Mono Practice is excited to announce its inaugural exhibition, Pointing To The Sun | An Exercise in Abstraction, curated by Rod Malin. The exhibition features the work of David Brown,  Zoë Charlton, Ariel Cavalcante Foster, Terence Hannum, Stephen Hendee, Bill Schmidt, and Ruri Yi. 

Pointing To The Sun | An Exercise in Abstraction is a celebratory exhibition featuring the works of Baltimore-based artists that will help establish a new beginning - Mono Practice. The importance of creating public space is fundamental to the existence of the human condition. The ability to connect and participate is key to the realization of new possibilities, and new partnerships. 

The practice of abstraction is the deity of creation; as of now, one million Earths could fit inside the Sun, yet the Sun at one time will be about the size of Earth. It's in the accumulation of moments or gestures that we equivocate meaning. 


-Lawrence Weiner

The work in Pointing To The Sun | An Exercise in Abstraction looks to the specific relationship between practice and abstraction, between mind and action, the here and elsewhere. The act of examining inspirational aspirations is common practice for creative fields, putting the mind in far away places to bring back to pace. For the world Baltimore is in now, it is both weirdly close and familiar, yet also undefined; by being everywhere, it is also geographically challenged. For those who are here, it is home.
