Masters in Fine Arts (MFA) candidates from the Universality of Utah are curating a show of their new work in which they utilize various processes, materials and media to explore the idea of “call and response.” This group show will include the work of six artists who are exploring different methods of responding to cultural phenomena.
Dana Hansen uses virtual reality in his work to question what we perceive as reality. Kate Wingard seeks to distort communication, focusing on intimacy and vulnerability by means of video installation and sculpture. Josh Graham incorporates 2-D and 3-D elements into an installation that highlights the consequences of becoming disconnected from the natural environment. Kylie Millward uses animated gifs, screen-printing, and illustrations as a means of responding to ideas of addiction and female gender roles. Etsuko Hansen is pursuing her identity through photography and printmaking processes. Nolan Flynn challenges painting by questioning the weight of ideas and the difference between the sentimental and naive.
Please join Dana, Kate, Josh, Kylie, Etsuko, and Nolan on January 18 and 19, 2019 for the Call and Response art exhibit. The show will be held during Gallery Stroll at Studio Eleven, 435 W 400 S, #304 from 5-10pm. Along with the artwork you will enjoy catering by Caputos Italian Deli. The gallery will reopen the next day January 19th from 11am-9pm for those who may have missed out on the opening.
