McLean Project for the Arts (MPA) will open Too Much of Too Much: Overstimulated, Overexposed, and Overextended on June 14, 2018 in the Bullock | Hitt Gallery at MPA@ChainBridge.

The curated exhibition features works exploring over-stimulation, excess and bombardment.

Juried by Independent Curator Laura Roulet, Too Much of Too Much features works by mid-Atlantic artists whose works explore the ideas of over stimulation, excess and bombardment, whether through too much information, activity, expectation, or by any other means.

“The juror has chosen 17 artists who approach the concept of ‘Too Much of Too Much’ in many different ways,” said Nancy Sausser, MPA Exhibitions Director. “It’s fascinating to see the diversity of approaches to this timely and universal concern, and the resulting exhibit is surprisingly and unexpectedly calming.”

Too Much of Too Much features works by artists including:

  • Julia Bloom
  • Travis Childers
  • Delna Dastur
  • Kimberly DiNatale
