Divisions, Connections and Intersections: Fact and Fiction in Family Histories

Book Arts     catalogue

Our family oral and written testimonies often conflict with one another; the gaps in information may deny us a complete understanding of our origins and yet all of us have stories to tell. This exhibit examines how book artists explore, interpret and illustrate our collective memory.

 

RECEPTIONS:

First Friday:  November 4,  6 - 8 pm

Artist Reception for Book Arts:  November 5,  4 - 6 pm

Artist Reception for FotoWeek:  November 12,  4 - 6:30 pm

Photography/Praxis

FotoWeek

Leading DC art photographers and educators, including Gary Anthes, Iwan Bagus, Andy Bloxham, Soomin Ham, Amy Hendrick, Leena Jayaswal, Steven Marks, Rania Razek, Shaun Schroth, and Alexandra Silverthorne will explore the nexus between art theory and photographic practice. The work will show how varied conceptual models of, and approaches to, photography - and the other visual, performance, and literary arts - have shaped their picture making. The show is curated by Steven Marks, Studio Gallery, and Iwan Bagus, professor of photography at the University of the District of Columba.

Elizabeth Casqueiro FRAGMENTATION/RECONSTRUCTION Life goes through periods of unified calm, only to be torn apart by any number of life events, and finally to come together in a new balanced form, distinct from the original state.  In Casqueiro's recent work, she explores this cycle of fragmentation and reconstruction.  She creates images on paper of memories, experiences, and random thoughts, tears them up, and brings them together in a satisfying composition.  Mirroring life, the results are surprising and often beautiful, and reveal new truths and perspectives that she had not considered before.

Jean Kim                             Kim’s works center around two main concepts.  The first is the experimentation of materials and how seemingly unmatched objects can be used to create art.  Kim is searching for materials that are flexible and can be repurposed or reshaped.  This exploration lead her to investigate the use of space, which is the second concept that pervades her work.  Each time she creates a work, she keeps the physical space in mind.  Her art, the walls, the viewers, and light each create another dimension.
