Cara DeAngelis has curated a show devoted to a network of linked themes: domestication, wildness, people, animals and environmental disorders. Like most such curatorial mission statements, this proposal serves better as a loose organizing principle than as an analytic key. To my eye, the pieces Ms. DeAngelis has selected align with two main themes:
These themes serve as resonators for the perversities and discomforts of the artists in the show. The work is conceived and crafted beautifully, and has been selected with a sensitive eye. The theme invites idiosyncrasy; it rewards a visit, if you have a chance to drop in.
