Upcoming Exhibitions at Fogelman Galleries of Contemporary Art
THERE MAY BE NO BEFORE AT ALL: SELECTED MOVING IMAGE WORKS
September 8 - October 27 Opening Reception: September 8, 5-7 PM
This exhibition features selected moving image works that use the human form to interrogate the slippage of place and time. How does the human form transgress from one location to another, from one body to another, from one moment to another? How do gender, gesture, and language inform embodiment and how does the medium of moving image shape this process? The international roster of artists explores physical transgression, gender expression, the death drive, and the archive. The exhibition includes the work of Vika Kirchenbauer + Mysti (Germany), Laura Henno (France), J. Louise Makary (United States), Marianna Milhorat (France), and Patrick Staff (United States/United Kingdom).
There May Be No Before at All is curated by artist Madsen Minax, Assistant Professor in Time-based Media at the University of Vermont.
August 28 – September 15 Artist Reception: September 8, 5-7 PM
Echo's Bones features the work of University of Memphis alumna Su WeiChu (BFA, 2016). The exhibition explores the impermanence and mortality of the ecological system. The installation, comprised of textile-based objects, blurs the boundaries of sculpture and painting. Taken together, they consider the metamorphosis of the spirit of nature often found in mythology and folklore—combining elements of obscure, fragmented geological formations with anthropomorphic biological systems.
Faculty in the Department of Art at the University of Memphis selected Su from the Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 graduating Bachelor of Fine Arts classes for this prestigious solo exhibition. An annual tradition, this exhibition provides an outstanding graduate with the opportunity to present a body of work as well as develop and execute an exhibition concept with Fogelman Galleries staff.
Free and open to the public, Monday - Friday, 9 am - 4 pm
