Not to be missed...
The exhibition Absence/Excess/Loss opens on April 20th at Rochester Contemporary in Rochester, New York. To quote the website, it's a "group exhibition of installation-based work, which considers how the process of repetition informs memory and melancholia. Specifically, how does the creation of repeated objects relate to the act of mourning? This exhibition will consider the work of seven artists - each sharing an affinity for vernacular and domestic materials in which process comes to bear as much meaning as the (final) object. Each artist will create an installation unique to the gallery space at the Rochester Contemporary, considering how the act of repetition, and the making of multiples, generates memory and meaning." Absence/Excess/Loss was curated by Marni Shindelman and Sarah E. Webb and I'm really looking to checking it out. The opening reception is on April 20th from 7 p.m.-10 p.m. and the show runs until May 20th. The two images I've posted are works by artist Wendy Kawabata (the bottom image is representative of her work that will be in the exhibition).
