Raymond Banke’s exhibition “14^3” features an aquarium with many aquascaping elements outside of the water, as well as photographs of PVC pipes alongside air plants. “14^3”, pronounced “fourteen cubed”, inaugurated the Shah student showcase gallery, which Art Club sold sweatshirts to fundraise for last year.
