Large Auditorium | Room 2225

Opening Reception Wednesday, February 11, 3 - 7 p.m.
Art Gallery | Room 2305

In Beyond Origin, the importance of form and material is emphasized as artist Heather Ramsdale carefully constructs objects that represent structural slices of renovation/design materials.
The constructed forms are often used as metaphors for questioning or encapsulating time, or are used to make comments regarding the speed of time. Recognizable objects are re-presented in combination with architectural and interior design elements, and seem to bookend decades or eras. This is in an effort to generate a unique psychological response that feels familiar and new.
The goal of the artist is to prompt the viewer's psychic space and bring into question several ideas centered around time, how we relate to it by the way we live, and how to locate ourselves within it.

This exhibition will showcase work by contemporary artists who critically evaluate the ways in which images of, and information about, diverse communities, events, and conflicts are circulated and contextualized via contemporary media networks.

The exhibition concerns the relationship between “multiculturalism” and today’s communications technologies, addressing issues pertinent to mainstream media —censorship, surveillance, media biases and cultural stereotypes — as well as social media — its democratization, its role in coordinating social movements and revolutions, as well as its occasional abuse by anonymous users. Within the context of the 2015 Articulture Biennial Arts Festival theme of “multiculturalism.” CHANNELS offers an inquiry into how we participate in the creation and dissemination of intercultural knowledge.

About the Curator: Independent curator and current Ph.D. candidate at the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, Allison Young is the curator of the Articulture Biennial Arts Festival Exhibition, CHANNELS.
