Upcoming Exhibitions

Riisa Gundesen

March 10th – April 22nd, 2023

This exhibition will consist of a series of cutout paintings, installed on the walls, floor, and plinths, overlapping each other and creating a distorted recreation of the artist’s bathroom. Gundesen addresses popular commercial items associated with ‘wellness’, beauty régimes and mental health, (such face masks, candles, bath products, makeup paraphernalia, fitness attire/athleisure) both as still life objects and ‘costumes’ which transform painted figures in ambiguous or unsettling ways. This body of work explores themes of femininity, the abject, and mental illness, addressing the commercial popularity of “self-care” and “wellness”.

Jason Urban & Leslie Mutchler

May 5 – June 17, 2023

This exhibition is a new installation of printed and light-based works titled, Auroral Studies (working title). The artwork is related to an ongoing body of work called Geochromatic Studies which takes a similar approach to Spectra in its satirical and superficial approach to pedagogy, color research, and geology. Geochromatic Studies (Introduction to Geochromatic Studies, Intermediate Geochomatic Studies, Advanced Geochromatic Studies, Geochromatic Studies: Out of Gamut, and Color Impracticum) is an evolving fictive course rooted in color science, pseudo-science, and the spiritual. It’s a class without content, borrowing from pedagogical language and theory, and is anything but concrete.
