Fail-Safe: Discomforts Close to Home

RICHARD SPEER
Friday August 29
Hap Gallery
916 NW Flanders St.
 
Hap Gallery continues its rather astonishing run of superb exhibitions with a group exhibition called Fail-Safe: Discomforts Close to Home. Curated by Surface Design editor Marci Rae McDade, the show is themed on the anxieties that have haunted Americans since 2007 and 2008, when the housing-market bubble began to burst. The subsequent economic meltdown was, to put it mildly, deeply discomfiting to the American psyche, and that sense of financial and psychological dread permeates the artworks in the show. Eighteen artists from across the U.S. have works on view: textiles, fibers, human hair, wire and other quotidian materials. Sometimes subtly, sometimes blatantly, these materials combine into dark commentaries on the anxiety undermining our sense of security. Aug. 7-30.
