The second part of BAC’s annual members’ exhibition presents works by a diverse group of artists selected by guest juror Walter Maciel.

The works in this exhibition evolve from an obsessiveness and immersion in the process of making — something like hunger — while evoking the tension between being fully realized abstract “things” and pieces disintegrating into their many components. Crossing boundaries between painting, sculpture and installation, the artists in the show lay bare their creative processes through works that embody time and the presence of their hand.
