UPCOMING | Sara Angelucci | October 21 – December 10, 2016

Sara Angelucci

Sara Angelucci’s practice is based in photography, video and audio, exploring vernacular photographs and films, and analyzing the original context in which images are made. Drawing attention to conventions of image making, her work foregrounds the cultural role vernacular images play in framing particular stories, creating histories, and memorialization. Over the years her projects have developed from an examination of the family archive and immigration, to a broader analysis and interpretation of anonymous/found photographs.


UPCOMING | Peter Eudenbach | October 21 – December 10, 2016

Peter Eudenbach
This is Not an Object

The exhibition This is Not an Object will feature work by Virginia-based conceptual artist Peter Eudenbach, who creates objects investigating “the relationship between function and absurdity.” Using sculpture, installation, and video, Eudenbach explores the history of art and science while toying with our expectations of the commonplace. He often creates multiples and edition pieces and as Eudenbach states, “The ideas normally emerge from a search for poetry among serendipitous juxtapositions.”
