"O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
“Jabberwocky”, Lewis Carroll, “Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There”
Let it never be said that this exhibition lacks a theme. All exhibitions need a theme and this one can be gotten from its title, “Frabjous,” meaning delightful, wonderful, superb. Each of the works in this exhibition contains one of these qualities, many two, and some all three. Works in the exhibition embody the spirit of unfettered creativity characterized by Carroll`s poem quoted above and the book from which it springs.
Unbridled imagination, unconstrained by conventional logic, offers glimpses into worlds unseen and unknown. Seemingly frivolous, the frabjous liberates by example; its exuberance and unpredictability infectious. Difficult to legislate against, it is the enemy of all oppression and repression.
Frabjous is curated by Joel Carreiro, Lili Jamail, and Dionis Ortiz.
