A two-part exhibition presented by Monira Foundation in partnership with The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts.

EFA Studios and Monira Foundation are pleased to present a show in two parts highlighting the breadth of contemporary practices and links between their resident artists. The first part, at Monira Foundation, is titled In Retrospect and presents works relating to memory and self-reflection. It features portraits and testaments looking back in time and looking out from the present. The second part replays these themes and warps them as if in a Bad Mirror. Substitutions of different artists or different works by the same artists expand the grouping and allow for more avenues of exploration.

Monira Foundation, an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution, functions as a radical experimental laboratory, working in close collaboration with artists, curators, musicians, dancers, producers, and writers to conceive, realize, and present innovative projects in all media. Its aim is to spark, intensify, and promote an evolving cultural and social dialogue between creators, audiences, and institutions. Focusing on the unique potential of interdisciplinary work in a context distinct from the distracting pressures of academia and the market, Monira Foundation advances the practices and products of today’s foremost artists, amplifying their contributions to communities both local and distant.
