Places, Names, Dates
Front Gallery – Downstairs
Places, Names, Dates, a solo exhibition by Chris Ireland, explores the ways everyday existence is catalogued from photo albums to social media. The inspiration behind this body of work came from the discovery of an autobiography of the artist’s deceased grandfather. Hand-typed pages, completed over several years, were stashed away in boxes with his other personal goods and mementos, about to be discarded. Loose pages filled with fragmented thoughts, recollections, locations, and dates. So much of modern life is also recorded, often willingly, sometimes not. What becomes of these collections? And what are the stories that emerge from them? Rescued from the anonymity of the pile, the pieces in this exhibition explore the fragile nature of our analog and digital archives.
It Only Wanted to Play Main Gallery – Downstairs
With new large scale video projection pieces and kinetic sculpture, Blake Weld’s solo exhibition, “It Only Wanted to Play,” probes into the misinterpretations of autonomy of backyard apparel. Blake Weld is an interdisciplinary artist who has become keen to the language of uncertainty. Blake has exhibited all over the country and most recently exhibited work with Art Room a non-profit gallery in Fort Worth, Texas as well as with AURORA Expanded in Dallas, Texas.
