Exhibition and Artist Talk in Montreal

Four images from American Stills are included in an upcoming group show at Galerie Lilian Rodriguez in Montreal opening Saturday, March 2nd.  Curated by Marisa Portolese, The Body and the Landscape is a contemporary photographic exhibition that brings together the work of an eclectic group of women artists that explore different permutations of the figure in the landscape and whose practices revolve around the genre of portraiture, the romanticized landscape and gendered space.  Exhibiting artists are Jessica Auer (Canada), Jasmine Bakalarz (Argentine), Margaret Haines (Canada/USA), Jinyoung Kim (Canada/Korea), Celia Perrin Sidarous (Canada), and Tema Stauffer (USA).

In conjunction with the exhibition, I will present an artist talk at Concordia University on Thursday, February 28th at 1:30pm.  Many thanks to Fine Arts faculty members Marisa Portolese and Genevieve Cadieux for making this possible.

PAUSE at Foley Gallery

Eva Fazarri from All That Remains 

Foley Gallery presents a week-long group exhibition of photographs by six artists who graduated from Pratt: Eva Fazzari, Peter Riesett, Rachel Longosch, Austin Nelson, I-Hsuen Chen, and Liang-pin Tsao. According to Allen Frame, these six photographers "stalk the space of nowhere, anywhere, and somewhere and arrive 'here' in the eerie calm of Pause, their exhibition of photographs depicting lives and landscapes on hold, barren, bleak, forgotten, anonymous, abandoned, and random.  Their views of the world are rooted in memory and marked by transience.  They are travelers poking into voids, looking at emptiness, examining the anxiety of unresolved questions.  The artists are melancholic progeny, gazing at the family tree after it's been chopped down, and unfolding maps to forgotten places."

The exhibition includes selections from I-Hsuen Chen's Nowhere in Taiwan series that was featured in Culturehall's New Artists Feature, Winter 2012.
