Adjective technical

Liminal showcases projects from seven artists at the start of their careers. Through the medium of photography, these artists look thoughtfully at spaces that are often neglected by mainstream society and find comfort and inspiration on the margins of our everyday experience. The word liminal serves as a double entendre, defining not only the nature of initial exploration in each artist’s work, but also the threshold-like place that these projects hold in the artists’ careers. Liminal celebrates innovative and energetic new work, pays tribute to the growth of the art world in Portland, and delights in the creative inspiration these seven artists have found in Maine.
