Exhibition: VIEW-points

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, January 18, 6–9 pm

Rebekah Wilhelm

 

January 18- March 3

Opening up to the community is the reception for VIEW – points, an exhibition focusing on the cultural and conceptual implications of mapping as both object and activity. Although the discussion of mapping typically focuses on the relationship between the map and its referent, the emphasis shifts to include relationships between artists’ intentions and the principles of selectivity they employ.

Work from local artists; G. M. Donley, Michael Loderstedt, Wendy PartridgeSai Sinbondit, and Rebekah Wilhelm were curated to show these themes at play.

The artists and viewers participating in VIEW – points explore, provoke and reflect on mapping as orientation rather than destination.

 

“Maps provide information and direct attention.  The artists in VIEW-points invite viewers to consider how imagining and depicting space shifts and shapes perspectives.”
