THERE MAY BE NO BEFORE AT ALL: SELECTED MOVING IMAGE WORKS
September 8 – October 27, 2017
Opening Reception: September 8, 5-7 PM
The Martha and Robert Fogelman Galleries of Contemporary Art
The University of Memphis
This exhibition features selected moving image works that use the human form to interrogate the slippage of place and time. How does the human form transgress from one location to another, from one body to another, from one moment to another? How do gender, gesture, and language inform embodiment and how does the medium of moving image shape this process? The international roster of artists explores physical transgression, gender expression, the death drive, and the archive. The exhibition includes the work of Vika Kirchenbauer + Mysti (Germany), Laura Henno (France), J. Louise Makary (United States), Marianna Milhorat (United States), and Patrick Staff (United States/United Kingdom).
There May Be No Before at All is curated by artist Madsen Minax, Assistant Professor in Time-based Media at the University of Vermont.
