Heidi Schwegler's exhibit, "Benign Neglect," addresses the potential for aesthetic pleasure and conceptual content found in the discards of our everyday landscape. Surveying the ignored, the abandoned, and the ruined, the artist acknowledges that objects, whether art objects or otherwise, have been issued a conceptual death sentence the moment they enter the world. However well-made or well-intentioned, the stuff of the world is inexorably marred by this finality. At its grandest, this project seeks to create new ways of thinking about ordinary objects and their inevitable fragmentation.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until January 8, 2022.
