Spring Exhibitions Gallery Talk
Join us Saturday, May 18, for a gallery talk with the artists of Spring SOLOS 2019 and AAC resident artist Roxana Alger Geffen. Tour the exhibitions with the participating artists and AAC staff, engage in a conversation about the works on view, and then join us for a reception to meet and mingle with these talented artists.
Spring SOLOS 2019
For Spring SOLOS 2019, artists Brian Barr, Emily Campbell, Noel Kassewitz, Greg Stewart, Greta Bergstresser, Jack Warner, and Ying Zhu have installed solo-style exhibitions in AAC’s seven main gallery spaces. These artists tackle timely environmental issues, draw on their own experiences of childhood, and create installations that shift viewers’ perceptions of time, space, and history in work that encompasses sculpture, photography, installation, drawing, and painting.
Roxana Alger Geffen: The Binding Ties
In The Binding Ties, Roxana Alger Geffen presents sculptures created in part with objects and materials drawn from her family, ordinary things found in her own attic or her grandmother’s junk drawer. Combining materials from different times and places, which were originally intended for a range of practical uses, the artist binds together disparate moments, influences, and intentions. The works reflect the impossibility of forming a single, coherent image of the past, when faced with layers of interpretation, the complexity of individual stories, and our own pre-existing perspectives.
