In “Inside Outside” the Graduate Students of Indiana University have interwoven their four distinctive installation-based works at 339 Franklin St SW. Regardless of the outwardly diverse appearances of the works installed on the property, the artists find cohesion in their themes and architectural interventions. The individual artists operate on varying planes in both media and in subject – such as the controversial methods of water conservation, the interpersonal balance of communication and silence, the unpleasant affect of tourism, and symbols of North American cultural shift. The members of this group individually intervened with the existing structures in very unique ways, but interconnectivity exists in their overlapping in themes of instability and transformation, loss and rebirth, strength and vulnerability.

The Graduate Students of the Indiana University Sculpture Department in Bloomington, IN include the following six emerging artists: Matthew Falvey (Boca Raton, FL), James Kidd (Dayton, OH), Amelia Volwiler-Stanley (Grand Rapids, MI), and collaborative team Dan Woerner & Kate Burnet (New York City, NY). These artists' subject matters span a wide range of various social, environmental, and cultural issues. Their chosen media are also just as varied, and run the gamut with metal casting, animation, found objects, drawing, video, and textiles. The Indiana University Master of Fine Arts Candidates have previously participated in SiTE:LAB as artists in "Black Gold" curated by Julie Schenkelberg during Art:Downtown 2016.
