TURN THE PAGE ¬

THE FIRST TEN YEARS OF HI-FRUCTOSE

MAY 22, 2016–DECEMBER 31, 2016

The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art is pleased to present Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose. This exhibition marks the tenth anniversary of the magazine Hi-Fructose and highlights fifty-one of the most remarkable artists featured between its pages.

This one-of-a-kind exhibition brings together artists who might not typically exhibit together. Each one is a master of their media and among the best in their field. They use their art as a tool to convey their vision, rather than as the source of their investigations. Despite differing levels of recognition and prominence, all the artists have a unique voice and vision to offer. They come from different geo-locations, perspectives, and approaches to art-making.

It is Virginia MOCA's pleasure to bring them beyond the flat world of paper and digital screens to our region, many for the first time. Turn the Page reveals much about the art of our time and the cultural landscape in which it was created.
