Art Staff Biennial Exhibition
August 31September 16, 2011
Opening Reception: Wednesday, August 31, 2011, 5:008:30pm
|The exhibition is the fourth of its kindshowcasing the talents of the Department of Art’s support staff who not only supervise the daily operations of the various genres, but also have their own art practices.
Their works are as diverse as their disciplinesincluding new work by Fassonaki exploring musician idol worship by means of a Patti Smith song; Sitko's sculpture considers the gesture of negotiation; Hubbs presents uncanny photographs and videos that render the mundane into the spectacular; Orser’s video questions sound and image relationships in a humorous reenactment of a western-themed catfight; Evans’ sculptures sketch out space beyond the third dimension and explore permutations of the picture plane; Bassett’s prints describe the historical fiction of intercostal rivalries; Simon's sculptures and photographs examine his artistic and political masturbation; Pankin’s sculptures reference the art of Bonsai; and, Beller’s conceptual installation threatens to become unhinged from its contextual background.
