‘In Bloom’ is the first and welcoming exhibition of the spring 2018 semester, curated by the Swell Gallery. “Bloom” is described as a first step, a beginning of a longer and beautifully complex developing system that adapts and changes within the surrounding it’s fostered in. ‘In Bloom’ brings together various artists who explore this concept, in both more existential and literal ways. Here, one can explore those delicate moments in between a past that shapes us, and a present that defines us.
