Curator's Statement: "This exhibit brings together a group of artists whose visual languages are variously tempered or liberated by the mash-up culture in which we live; a culture that at times anoints absolutes and 'correctness' even as it evaluates the innumerable outcomes, solutions and potentials derived from personal, cultural, historical, and scientific sources. New Work, New Problems features pieces diverse in material, procedure, and conceptual structure whose cumulative narratives continue established traditions while pressing forward with re-contextualization, allusion to, and simulation of contemporary ideas and perceptions."  - Adam Welch
