Visual Arts Center presents Fall 2019 Exhibitions opening reception
Visual Arts Center will present the opening reception for its Fall 2019 Exhibitions: Nikita Gale: "Easy Listening," Kenneth Tam: "Details, Maria Antelman: Mechanisms of Affection," Saakred: "Sin Nombre, Sin Cuerpo," and "Learning Tuscany 2019: In Plato’s Cave."
Gale makes work that visually articulates the mechanics of sound and points to the intertwined histories of politics and “the crowd.” Through video and sculpture, Tam questions conceptions of masculinity, gendered forms of identity formation, and male intimacy. Merging the digital and analog through photomontage, sound installation, sculpture, and animation, Antelman probes the intersections between the body, photography, computers, and cyberspace. Saakred’s work is raw, interdisciplinary, and deeply personal. "Sin Nombre, Sin Cuerpo" moves across genres to document and reveal a lexicon for learning to live as a trans Latino. "In Plato’s Cave" presents photographs made by UT students during the six-week Learning Tuscany summer study abroad program.
Following the opening reception, the exhibits will be on display through December 6.
