The Fragile Species: New Art Nashville included paintings, photographs, sculptures, and video art by 20 artists from the Nashville area whose contemplations on human frailty range from the whimsical and ironic to the poignant and elegiac.

Whether in works that allude to the fleeting nature of life, childhood vulnerability, aging, illness and trauma or emotional struggle, the artists in the exhibition convey the pain and resilience of the human experience with empathy, beauty, and power.
