Theory + Practice curated by Evonne M. Davis

April 19 – May 17, 2008
Opening Reception Saturday April 19, 7-10 PM

“…There are no countries now….” From artist Alan Bigelow’s When I was President

Theory+ Practice is an acknowledgement, interrogation and fete of the void between what the world could be and what it is. Web artist and writer Alan Bigelow’s piece, When I was President is an interactive projection that details a presidency ended by a suicide bomber: “a high school teacher from Des Moines.”  “She said it was the only way to make the world right again.”  Site-specific sculptural works by Brian Wondergem include a 15-foot high Ferris wheel built exclusively out of ladders, suggestive of both an extreme pragmatism as well as yearning for escape.
