Opening: Monday, October 25, 2010, 6 to 9pm. Show runs until October 29th.
The AMS Gallery is pleased to present girls girls girls. The show brings together the work of UBC visual arts students, Holly Parmley and Athena Papadopoulos. Working with video, performance, photography and sculpture, they explore issues of presentation encountered by the role of the artist in the persistently gendered body.
The work communicates resemblances between their recent theoretical interests in the notion of pleasure in relation to power structures, and addresses performed subjectivity of learned social behaviors. They have manifested these strategies into works that reflect and subvert their own contemporary experiences. The show playfully complicates the site, production and viewing of art by unraveling the relationship between artist, subject and viewer.
Holly Parmley and Athena Papadopoulos are currently completing their BFA at UBC this year.
Gallery Hours: October 25 to 29th, Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm.
