About the Exhibition:

E.K. Huckaby: Anhydjinnic Molassicism

“I welcome patrons kindly attending and hereby offer some caveats on the viewing experience: This exhibition should not be trusted when it claims to speak only to you and no other. Any piece that declares itself a passageway never before opened is suspect. Let no mere thing isolate you from your friends or resist questioning. These works cannot protect you from the unknown or deliver you to another world. Any wisdom implied you possessed upon entry. All appearances are to be interrogated and not allowed to exert undue influence. Yet, this exhibition is in essence about you.”
– E. K. Huckaby
