Abbey Meaker’s soft pastel-like photographs are composed of classical portraits of nuns that the artist culled while researching the Catholic orphanage where her family members, Arthur and Gilbert, resided in the 1930s. Meaker has projected, recomposed, blurred, and rephotographed these traditional portraits to reappropriate ideas regarding the isolated/insulated lives of religious communities of women. The exhibition will include photographs and projections. Dreams of Arthur and Gilbert will be shown at the Living/Learning Gallery, University of Vermont from September 2 – September 26, with an opening reception beginning at 5:30pm on Thursday, September 4.
In his first US solo museum exhibition – Negation of the Universe – Richard Phillips brings his exploration of contemporary culture to Dallas. His strikingly distinctive paintings address the complex web of pop themes in our media-saturated world – sexuality, politics, power and death among them. For Phillips, critique is as much an intrinsic material in the conception and staging of his work as the materials of their making. His conflating of subject and genre continues to provide challenging comment on the condition and reach of contemporary art. Negation of the Universe will be on view August 10, 2014 at Dallas Contemporary, 161 Glass Street Dallas Texas
