Screening Room: By Proxy
Jeremy Hutchison, Mariah Anne Johnson, Ivetta Sunyoung Kang, and My Husband
AAC’s online summer exhibition, By Proxy, explored the tension between solitude and solidarity that has characterized public and private life for many people since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Presented entirely online, the show reflected both a sense of isolation and a desire for connection and communication, while exploring the mediated togetherness offered by technology. For the fall season, AAC is pleased to present a selection of video work in the Truland Gallery which was originally shown online as part of By Proxy, giving audiences an opportunity to experience the work in person and on a larger scale. Work on view will include Jeremy Hutchison’s Dear Mr. Zuckerberg, a music video created as part of the artist’s ongoing social media-based project, videos of new performances created by artist duo My Husband, work from Mariah Anne Johnson’s Habitat series, and video documentation of Tenderhands, a series of short performances originally created by Ivetta Sunyoung Kang for AAC’s Instagram feed.
