SOLOS 2020 Artist Talks
Join AAC online on Thursday, November 12 at 6pm for artist talks with Rebecca Rivas-Rogers, Constance Simon, and Heidi Zenisek. The three artists will discuss the solo shows they are presenting as part of SOLOS 2020. The talks will take place on Zoom. The talks are free but registration is required.
Through her installation, The Drawing Room, Rebecca Rivas-Rogers brings together sculptures, isometric drawings, and improvised measuring devices, setting up a dialogue between two- and three-dimensional space. In her abstract, grid-based paintings, Constance Simon applies techniques honed as a representational artist to create abstract works that couple influences from textile traditions with the endless possibilities of the grid as a form. Examining her own uniquely American childhood, Heidi Zenisek considers how her early exposure to hunting culture shaped her upbringing and introduced her to complex feelings about both life and death.
This is the second of two artist talk events taking place as part of SOLOS 2020. The first event, featuring Tara Gupta, Kim Llerena, and Anne Clare Rogers takes place on October 29.
On view: September 26 to December 19
For SOLOS 2020, AAC presents exhibitions by six contemporary artists who work in a diverse range of media including photography, installation, sculpture, and painting. The exhibitions are part of AAC’s long-running SOLOS program, which presents solo exhibitions and projects by emerging and established artists based in the Mid-Atlantic, selected from an open call for proposals
The six artists included in SOLOS 2020 were selected from an open call for proposals by two accomplished jurors: Terence Washington, formerly of the National Gallery of Art and currently Program Director of NXTHVN, a residency and gallery space in New Haven, Connecticut, and Michael Benevento, director of Current Space in Baltimore, Maryland.
