The palindromic title of this exhibition is a metaphor that conjures images of cars looping endlessly around a track. Inspired by the Jean-Paul Sartre play No Exit, Racecar brings together artists that consider the nature of a limited and repetitive existence. This idea is explored through artwork that references film, pop icons, and stored memories. Artists include Richard Renaldi, Nick Madden, Robert Longo, Tori Tinsley (right), Kelly Kristen Jones, Esteban Patino, Marni Shindelman, S. Patricia Patterson, Marlene Lillian Hawthrone, David Herbert, and Alejandro Figueredo Diaz-Perera.

Medium considers how intangible vestiges of the past haunt our contemporary world. This idea of a persistent and disruptive presence that can consciously or unconsciously impact how we think and act is ghost-like in its (dis)embodiment. Ghosts, often portrayed in literature and films as restless spirits with an agenda, communicate through sensitive souls and individuals who purport to speak to the dead—mediums. This exhibition is advanced as a kind of séance with the artists and archival material serving as bridges to an uneasy past, mystical force or limnal space. Occasionally requiring a leap of faith, the emphasis is on exploration of the unknown and the power of the mind.
