Dangerous and Hard to See
Arizona State University, with the Bragg's Pie Factory, announces an all-media juried exhibition to be held Feb 4-25, 2011. Dangerous and Hard to See is a juried exhibition intercepting the conventions of gallery exhibition. Most often, the platitudes of traditional display are unwittingly heeded if not willfully ignored. This exhibition confronts gallery standards through humorous and/or critical execution. Desired works address traditional modes of presentation and function as institutional critique. Artists may choose to intervene through wall labels, lighting, viewer interface, scale, materiality, etc.
I am pleased to say, this piece, "This Side Toward Screen" will be included in this exhibit. If you live in or near Phoenix, check it out.
