In this digital era, nearly every facet of our lives interacts with distortion in some sense. From our artistic expectations to personal self-image, the lines of authenticity become blurred as we grow increasingly comfortable with the many faces we upload.
“Its Not Me, It’s My Image,” an exhibition curated by Gallery House Interns of Spring 2019, includes works that offer an experiential exploration of the implications of rapidly developing technology, social media, and the curation of multiple identities. The exhibition embraces a wide variety of media, including installations and video and film as well as more traditional media of painting and photography. Original works will be sold and auctioned to benefit the Children’s Arts Guild, a local beneficiary organization committed to providing underprivileged children with arts education.
The opening reception, Thursday, May 2, 2019, 7 - 10 PM, will feature live performances from Wrecked (https://wreckedsketches.bandcamp.com/), Prophet (https://soundcloud.com/thestrangedavinci/tracks), and Segami (@_segami).” The closing reception is Thursday, May 9, 2019, 7- 10 PM.
