Curated by Isaac Lyles
July 9 - August 8
Opening reception: July 9, 6 - 8pm

Everything seen...
Everything had...
Everything known...
-Arthur Rimbaud, “Departure”

With neuroimaging mapping the brain’s pathways of thought and emotion into knowable terrains, the NSA's omniscience, Google's purchase of surveillance companies DropCam and Nest, big data integration and quantification, and the constant objectification of life via digital photography and social media, the assertion of interior space and visionary possibilites is all the more important. New Hells juxtaposes this interior, psychological space with work that addresses current developments in bio-technology, social engineering, virtual fantasy, corporate culture, and sexnology. If, as D.H. Lawrence writes, "To know a thing is to kill it," New Hells is concerned with what's still breathing.!
