Reception & Artist Talk | Finn Schult: Everything You’ve Ever Wanted
The Hillsborough Community College Art Galleries is proud to present Everything You’ve Ever Wanted, an exhibition of new work by Finn Schult. This exhibition will be on display May 22 – June 22, 2023 at Gallery114@HCC Ybor City Campus. There will be an opening reception held on Thursday, May 25th from 5-8 p.m. with an artist talk to begin at 6 p.m.
Everything You’ve Ever Wanted is a solo exhibition of new work by Finn Schult (b. 1993, Naples, FL) reflecting on the inevitability of the end of the world and the fantasy of apocalypse as catalyst for utopia. Schult’s multimedia series exists as fragments, sketches and interludes distilled from an otherwise deranged web of theories. At times, the artworks presented in Gallery114@HCC feel terroristic, violent and unbearably bleak–at other times, they remind us of the beauty inherent in loss, longing and love. Schult’s work yearns for a world that doesn’t yet exist and mourns for a world that isn’t yet gone, answering the cry, “How will I ever get out of this labyrinth?” with “The only way out is through.”
Finn Schult is a visual artist and co-director of Heiress Gallery currently living and working in St. Petersburg, FL. He is an alumnus of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and received his MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2019. Guest curator Emiliano Settecasi earned his BFA in Studio Art from the University of South Florida in 2016. He is the founder and director of the Department of Contemporary Art Tampa, FL and a member of the artist collective QUAID.
