Culturefix Presents: "OPENING RECEPTION"
This exhibition presents a series of one night solo shows by artists who work in alternative mediums. As a gallery and event space it is only during opening events in which the audience is acutely conscious of the artwork that our installation possibilities expand. The five artists in this exhibition: Stephan Moore, Amanda Browder, Audra Brandt, David J. Merritt, and Joe McKay will each take over the gallery for a one night and one day solo exhibition which utilizes the entire space. Moore’s opening reception will take place on 7/27; Browder’s will be on 7/29, Brandt’s on 7/31; Merritt’s on 8/3; and McKay’s on 8/5 from 7pm – 10pm every night. Surrounding these temporary solo exhibitions will be 2-dimensional works created by the participating artists representing their process. To fully represent alternative mediums, the 5 artists showcased each represent a different alternative medium: sound art, installation, video and film, sculpture, and new media.
Stephan Moore’s ephemeral sound installation of oscillating fans and other junkyard objects creating a cacophony of broken down technology will fill the space from a set of four speakers. . Amanda Browder will transform the physical space using a mass of brightly colored cloth and oversized soft sculptures leaving little trace of the gallery environment. Audra Brandt will be projecting a series of films and videos whose mechanisms will become structural, causing a multi-sensory and non-traditional experience of film viewing. David J Merritt’s mass of tactile sculptures reminiscent of amulets and idols will be scattered among the space. Joe McKay’s interactive game of killing virtual cockroaches will cover the gallery walls.
