This show was created and envisioned to explore the various emotional facets of growth as a universal theme in people’s lives. This show focused on the feelings and sensations prompted by change, whether through anxious flutters or the receding of long-held beliefs. It explored how as we “leap forward,” it is with hindsight that we realize how past experiences tested, developed and prepared us for a whole new cycle. Curated artworks reflected the successes, milestones, failures, and hopes of the artists that created them, as they embarked on new life cycles and met new challenges. Audiences were invited to see visual displays of how humans move forward by “Leaps and Bounds” and cope with change. This show demonstrated Hayward’s commitment to collaborative work with artists that explores subjects that impact personal development and affect the collective consciousness.
