STIFF brings together six contemporary artists in an exhibit curated by René Treviño.

Curated by René Treviño
March 6–April 11, 2018

(Gallery closed March 12-18 for Spring Break)

Felons might face STIFF sentences; a STIFF knee joint is inflexible. One might STIFF a waiter for bad service; a dead body is called a STIFF. The word STIFF in the title of the exhibit references arousal, rigidity, hardness. The work all has a palpable sense of heat and energy. These six artists assert themselves into complicated conversations about race, identity, gender and sexuality, yet these works have a sense of humor (the way sex is sometimes funny) and a visual splendor.
