Life in Progress

LIP = Life in Progress | AnySquared Projects’ LIP20/20 Exhibit & Arts Festival showcases work that expresses definitions and/or critiques of progress that provokes, challenges, or illustrates.

Through all media and a series of events in March, artists represent or examine what is actual progress, what some consider progress, and what is not. LIP 20/20 seeks to answer and explore this concept with our work, our art, in our communities, and as human beings, both in the city and the world. #LIP2020
