Opening Reception: Thurs, Nov 17, 2016 from 5:30 - 7:30 pm

Erin Neve (Texas/Washington DC) is a photographic artist whose work centers on non-literal representations and explorations of the body. In Bread Towers, Neve balances pieces of bread into fragile structural towers that act as stand-ins for the physical body. Inspired by liturgical rituals of breaking and consuming breads, Neve explores the notion that bodies can transform into sacred material (invisibly) and can create a new whole out of broken and fragile individual parts.

TODD CHRISTENSEN

Nov 17, 2016 - Feb 26, 2017
Urschel Gallery | Urschel Administrative Building
Free and open to the public

Opening Reception: Thurs, Nov 17, 2016 from 5:30 - 7:30 pm

Incorporating hundreds of old and decommissioned library books and other tomes from his personal collection, New Mexico artist Todd Christensen exhibits a site-specific installation that responds to the historic architecture of the Southwest School of Art’s Urschel Gallery. Using charts and diagrams, family, food, education and Christensen’s passion for collecting, the works that comprise the installation draw from journal entries, childhood stories, and a nostalgia for a past that doesn’t exist, to reflect the artist’s view of the bombardment of visual images that we all face as we go about our daily lives.
