POINT & COUNTERPOINT @ SECCA

Point and Counterpoint at SECCA

NC Arts Council Fellows 2014-2015

October 1, 2015 – January 17, 2016

Point & Counterpoint is a convergence of art being made today across North Carolina. The framework for this exhibition, point and counterpoint, insists that dealing with difference is a necessary and productive force in the development of an artist’s practice and in how we experience their work. Artists must perpetually ask difficult questions that will clear pathways to find form and meaning. Each of the eighteen artists of Point & Counterpoint has been awarded a grant by the North Carolina Arts Council to support their artistic process. The questions raised and the risks taken lead to the great variety of expression presented here.
