Summer Exhibitions Opening Reception
Our summer exhibitions open on Saturday, June 16th! Join us for drinks from 6 to 9pm to meet the artists participating in Open World and Within/Between and visit our resident artists in their studios.
Borrowing its title from “open world” style video game environments, Open World features eight contemporary artists and artist teams who engage in world-building through installation, video, digital media, sculpture, and collage. They invite their viewers to enter into these new worlds, constructing narratives or introducing characters that help the audience move through and understand the alternate realities and imagined spaces they’ve created.
Open World features work by Rachel Frank, Jodie Mim Goodnough, Rachel Guardiola, Azikiwe Mohammed, Nicholas O’Brien, Plakookee, Alissa D. Polan, and Stephanie J. Williams.
In Within/Between, AAC Resident Artists Olivia Tripp Morrow and Jen Noone explore materiality and form. Jen Noone explores the relationship between the appearance of a thing, its material make up, and its function. Olivia Tripp Morrow’s work addresses the body, memory, sexuality, domesticity, and excess.
