Friday 20th March, 2015, the moon crosses between the sun and the earth, obscuring the sun’s light. Darkness, but only for a moment. This ritual, practiced to perfection, has played out since the beginning and will repeat again and again. A loop. And every winter change to spring.

Together, these eight artists explore the depth, power, and reach of the ideology, metaphors, and poetics of cosmologies within contemporary culture.
