[ON]now Exhibition | Simulacrush

December 14, 2019 - April 5, 2020

Guest Jurors: Justine Kablack, Izabel Nielsen, and Anna Queen of SISTERED (Portland, ME) Jurors' Statement Simulacrush features eighteen artists meditating on states of reality across media. This timely group of work wrestles with systems of difference, communicating and distorting truth in a hyperreal fashion—simulacra. In a moment where information is manifested, digested, and regurgitated with extreme speed, presenting this work in a virtual environment becomes necessary to understanding the states in which we find ourselves and the ways we manipulate…

Screen | Erin Dorney | Question the Body

March 7 - June 7

QUESTION THE BODY is a collection of photographs and time-lapse videos where gathered natural objects obscure pages from “The Question and Answer Book About The Human Body” by Ann McGovern (Random House, 1965). Through recorded erasure/redaction, each poem is built by the disembodied hands of the artist. The unobscured text reveals inquiries into physical form, preference, expression, and function. By emphasizing process over product, QUESTION THE BODY blurs the boundaries between writing, visual art, appropriation, performance, and assemblage. Works in…

Each reinvigorates painting today through energetic personal expression. Artists included in the exhibition are Meghan Brady, Inka…

David Row | The Shape of Things

The Shape of Things is the first major exhibition of painter and master printmaker David Row’s work in his home state. Born in Portland, in 1949, Row is a multi-generational Mainer. His father’s family settled in Perry, a small town in Washington County near the Canadian border, in the early 19th century. Row visited the family homestead many times as a child and thought of it “as the wildest place I’d ever seen.” In his teen years, Row’s family began…
