Electric Works is pleased to present Hughen/Starkweather in a solo exhibition.

"Adapt, Retreat, Defend, Abandon" features recent works from Hughen/Starkweather’s ongoing project, Shifting Shorelines. In this project, the artists investigate areas where land meets water, and the complex human, environmental, and historical factors that shape these places. Similar to early cartographers dependent on inconsistent tools and word-of-mouth information, Hughen/Starkweather’s research involves a trail of data, images, maps, and oral histories. The resulting drawings and paintings reinterpret the complex narratives of landscape, creating new and unexpected forms through which to view a place, its history, and its possible futures.
