Hothouse 9 | Meet Our 6 New Apprentices

Hothouse

This year’s Hothouse review team deliberated and debated 99 submissions from across the country, in the process also re-imagining the many permutations and understandings of what abstract art is and means to people. It was a challenge for the disparate group to agree on 6, but finally and unanimously it did. Herewith, the 6 participants in our 9th edition of Hothouse; Reveal Thyself!
