“The contemporary is he who firmly holds his gaze on his own time so as to perceive not its light, but rather its darkness.” – Giorgio Agamben
Five MFA candidates present new work engaging different iterations and relationships with darkness. This exhibition combines diverse practices and process-based research via performance, sculpture, photography, animation, and video. Unifying themes of shadow and darkness manifest variously through biological intervention upon image, recreating the record, modifying skins, examining protest within a body, or shaping a nameless structure.
Artists: Angela Glanzmann, Cameron Kerr, Mandana Mansouri, Ramey Newell, Weronika Stepien
Opening reception: September 19, 5–7 p.m., performance at 6:30 p.m.
