Julia Martin

Julia Martin’s anticipated solo exhibition Hypnagogic, marks a turning point for the artist. Titled after the moments before sleep where hallucinations and inexplicable events are sensed, this show illuminates the subconscious voice, inviting viewers into conversation. Martin visually allows herself to break past reservations and ask important questions. Her style, freer and more animated than in past works, explores the concept of achieving clarity through relinquishing control. As a hypnagogic event provides a glimpse into the subconscious, this exhibition introduces a refreshingly unrestrained portrayal of an artist seeking truth.

Multi-instrumentalist, producer, and composer Larissa Maestro has composed a piece of original chamber music to accompany the first thirty minutes of our opening reception for Hypnagogic. The performance will take place promptly at 6:15pm. Players will circulate among viewers for a truly unique audio-visual experience. Attendees are asked to arrive at 6:00pm sharp, silence their phones, grab a glass of champagne and immerse themselves into what is sure to be a magical and memorable evening. Post performance, opening reception continues until 9:00pm with refreshments provided.
