StimulusSecond Floor Gallery
What inspires artists to create? What stimulates their imaginations? How do they interpret everyday culture? Presenting some answers to these questions, the exhibition Stimulus can be found along the walls of the second floor, where the current artists-in-residence share the films, videos, books, and music that have influenced or inspired their creative practices. The artists’ interests cover a broad range of material, imparting fresh and critical perspectives on the stuff of daily life.
