Joe Hedges, Archive Memory / Emily Sullivan Smith, Plight of Abundance
October 6, 2016@5:00 pm-7:00 pmFree
Archives in the twenty-first century exist in both the dusty basements of bureaucracies and in the flickering personal nospaces of the internet. Joe Hedges’ gravity-defying configurations of file boxes float in a layered simulacra of intermedia approaches from painting, installation, internet art and video. Representations of boxes are interrupted by abstract paint drips or digital glitches, serving as reminders of the changing nature of archive space and memory in a digitally mediated world.
Emily Sullivan Smith is an interdisciplinary artist, employing silkscreen, digital media and sculptural languages in her work. Plight of Abundance focuses on the global debate concerning the planet and the role that human choice, convenience and privilege plays in sustaining or destructing nature. Each work investigates the tenuous balance between humans and the environment through the perceived abundance of natural resources declining at the hand of human kind.
Exhibit runs October 6 – 26. Opening Reception Thursday, October 6 from 5-7 PM
