HOT•BED is pleased to present Now and at the Hour, a group exhibition curated by Anaïs Cooper-Hackman and Orlando Saverino-Loeb, featuring works by Seoul-born Philly-based painter Kay Seohyung Lee, New York-based visual artist Paul Gagner and Washington D.C.-based painter Eric Uhlir. The 37 works in the show represent and respond to the sense of absurdity that permeates every corner of political and social life today. The artists lean into the chaos and inherent humor of the present moment to make these challenging themes more accessible and bearable, without diluting their serious implications. These works together reinforce the necessity of levity and humor in maintaining hope and continuing through times of hardship. Now and at the Hour will be on view from December 4, 2021 – February 19, 2022 with an opening event on December 4th from 6–9pm EST. To RSVP, please visit https://www.hotbedphilly.com/appointments.
