‘Building Worlds’ Exhibit Coming to Greater Reston Arts Center

An otherworldly exhibition that explores the intersection of science fiction, fantasy and science with fears, ideals and being human is coming to Greater Reston Arts Center this month.

The exhibit, slated for July 21 through September 15, will feature the work of Michael Booker, Rachel Guardiola, Timothy Harper, Laura Beth Konopinski, and Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann.

An opening reception and curator’s talk, free and open to the public, is set for July 21 from 5-7 p.m.

In a statement, GRACE issued the following description of the exhibit:

Recognizing that our retelling of the past changes constantly and opening ourselves to new possibilities can help to identify the biases of our accepted histories. The artists in this exhibition create their own worlds, including cultural references and artifacts, to question the assumptions of history-making and truth-telling.
