Charles Anselmo, Teatro / Moto: Photographs on Paper and Silk
An exhibition of new work on paper and silk, Teatro / Moto interprets the textured patinas and fragmented detritus of an abandoned hundred-year old theater in Havana, Cuba. Anselmo’s nine-foot wide prints on translucent Habotai silk suggest the scale of actual places, capturing the dissonances of Cuba’s urban landscape in moments of decline as the theater becomes an outside space, and the broken symmetries of grand structure are newly interpreted as decaying forms in a timeless archaeology of loss. In this way, the photographer develops a visual lexicon of desire for the ideal as he interprets the past, photographically captured in the warm palette of decay.
Joe Fox, New Work
Joe Fox’s sculpture and assemblages focus on the casting of common objects and geometric forms in cement, concrete, and plaster. He is both inspired and repelled by our material excess and discarded materials, and in this way he is working between two conflicting worlds: one of creation and another of destruction. He writes, “It is the ubiquitous object which represents many of humanity’s greatest accomplishments in science and engineering. As well, the ubiquitous object also contains within itself a predilection for destruction through the mining of resources, transportation, industrial pollution, and plastic waste.
The Introverts Collective, Perspectives: Past, Present, Future: Conversations about Racism
The four artists of the Introverts Collective have designed an art installation project that highlights history, personal stories, and portraiture. Free-standing doors serve as a metaphor to view systematic racism through three perspectives: past, present, and future. In addition to the three doors, the installation will include photographs and short videos which tell the story of the project’s inception, focusing on the interpersonal processes of the Collective members: three biracial and one white. Visitors are invited to respond creatively as they engage the work of Naima S. Dean, Zoe Fry, Winona Nadine Lewis and Sharon Virtue.
