Work by Jacob Aaron Schroeder

The Waiting Room presents How to become lost curated by Leslie Barlow ’16, MFA. The show features works by Jacob Aaron Schroeder ’14, Sayge Carroll, Meg Murphy, Lamar Peterson, and Maggie Thompson. 

How to become lost is an exploration into the ways artists escape into the content and method of their work as a means to process, heal, and liberate–and to get closer to a truth about life in ways that cannot necessarily be seen or framed through ordinary language or experience. It poses the question of why and what motivates someone to create: asking viewers to consider the tensions of making work in a painful, traumatic, accelerated, and angering climate while holding desire for artwork to be slow, pleasurable, and meaningful.
