Stewart Uoo and Jana Euler: Outside Inside Sensibility opens tomorrow, May 10. In this exhibition, Uoo’s dystopic cyborg-mannequins are juxtaposed with Euler’s multilayered figurative painting within an environment designed by Uoo. Seen together, the works suggest new ways of thinking about contemporary portraiture.
