 Exposure 18: "Nervous Laughter" 

Aimee Howard, Deborah Alma Wheeler, and Brett Williams
Saturday August 29th, 2015 Panel Discussion 4 PM and Reception 5- 7 PM.
Exposure 18: "Nervous Laughter" hopes to expose social contemporary issues addressing medical ethics, sexuality, and the self in contemporary culture. Within their art, is an element of dark humor that gives the work a seductive, alluring and to varying degrees subversive qualities. With each artist challenging a different society norm issue, they hope to challenge preconceived ideas on sexuality, technology and what art is.

The title for this edition of Exposure 18 comes from Aimee Howard, Deborah Alma Wheeler, and Brett Williams. Each of their work comes with its challenges as it ranges from Aimee Howard's critique on medicine and society to Deborah Alma Wheeler's themes of homosexual guilt and reason to Brett Williams' Fluxes inspired appropriation of technology to comment on pop culture through personal history. The challenging nature of the artwork and the unease it arouses is the inspiration for the exhibition's title

On August 29th, 2015 at 4 P.M there is a panel discussion with the artists. A reception for the artists immediately follows the panel starting at 5 PM to 7PM. A preview of their work will also be featured in the gallery's website at www.umsl.edu/~gallery.

Hours: Tuesdays - Saturdays 11 A.M. - 5 P.
