Juror Statement by Amanda Donnan
Selected from over 1,500 submissions, twixt cup and lip presents the work of twenty-one artists working in a range of mediums and across the United States. The exhibition title refers to an old proverb that warns of the unforeseen events — “slips” — that can occur in processes of transformation or transmission, upending anticipated outcomes. The included artists embrace rather than bemoan the slippages that happen in the in-between, whether by subverting material expectations, magnifying the marginal and incidental, or underscoring divergent interpretive possibilities. Reflecting a sense of ambiguity and estrangement — sometimes playful, sometimes uncanny — their works feel particularly salient against the topsy-turvy backdrop of our current socio-political landscape.
