BARRY ANDERSON: Fragments of Space [The Room]
Media Arts Room
February 5 – March 12, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, February 5, 2016 6 to 9 pm
Jill Downen’s exhibition, As If You Are Here, activates the volume of the main gallery through a series of miniature rooms situated inside of walls and viewed through small windows. The intimate interiors flow from an imagined place of diversity from the humble to the sacred; the industrial to the refined. Downen’s shaping of materials such as plaster, concrete, gold leaf and glass afford each room its haptic presence; surfaces and forms seem to defy their scale, illuminated by light and shadow. As If You Are Here invites viewers to unlock a desire to explore and discover conditions that shelter the human imagination.
In the Media Arts Room, the gallery presents a video work by Kansas City-based video artist Barry Anderson. This is the artist’s second exhibition with the gallery. Fragments of Space [The Room] is composed of two video animations, one projected and one on a small monitor, depicting an endless journey through an empty minimalist space that becomes part funhouse ride and part existential crisis.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday through Saturday 10 am – 5 pm & by appointment
