(SUB)URBAN

October 25–December 16, 2017

Opening Reception: Wednesday, November 1, 5–7 pm

 

A group exhibition of artwork that questions the reality of suburban and urban environments through humor, satire and irony. The work in the exhibition offers a wide range of interpretations of our man-made spaces. Through a combination of artists who work in print, painting, installation and sculpture,(Sub)Urban will present a well-rounded exploration of the contemporary surroundings. Benjamin Roger’s paintings explore the banality of the interior of our lives, once we are secure in our homes, while Sang-Mi Yoo’s work emphasizes the banality of our planned communities. Yoonmi Nam and Christine Buckton Tillman’s sculptures and Amze Emmon’s cutouts re-present items from our homes and streets that are ordinarily dismissed as being meaningless, and finally, Nick Satinover’s print installation visualizes the basest feelings behind most people’s day to day lives. These artists work in varying mediums and concepts, but their underlying interests explore different aspects of our suburban and urban experiences as men, women, immigrants and minorities.  

 

Curated by Matthew McLaughlin  

Featured Artists: Amze Emmons, Sang-Mi Yoo, Yoonmi Nam, Benjamin Rogers, Nick Satinover, and Christine Buckton Tillman

    Mission Statement

    The gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary art with an emphasis on the work of emerging and mid-career artists. The gallery supports contemporary art that is challenging and/or academically engaging and that addresses broad community and social issues. Through meaningful exhibitions and programming the gallery offers an outside-of-the-classroom experiential learning opportunity. The gallery space can be used as a laboratory for emerging artists and curators to experiment and work through their ideas, emphasizing the importance of the process to contemporary artistic practice. The gallery serves by providing exhibitions of social responsibility and artistic substance, as well as by offering an educational forum in which dialogue between artist and viewer and art and community is encouraged.
