August 28, 2018 Recent Press

In an August 21 article, Style Weekly featured the opening of VisArts’ exhibition “Of secrecy, the violet,” by New York City-based artist, Elissa Levy.

Curator Lauren Ross was excited to introduce Richmond audiences to Levy.

“In an era defined by an absence of consensus on what’s fake and what’s true, issues around media today are incredibly complex,” Ross says. “In a sense, Elissa sidesteps that morass by looking at media from the 20th century. But the references to today’s climate sit just under the surface. Sometimes the distance of time helps us process what we’re faced with.”
