Meg Aubrey: Surface

Saturday,  8.4.18   |   7–9 pm
"Meg Aubrey’s candy colored palette belies the loneliness, disquiet, and isolation she renders in her paintings of up-scale suburban life. Manicured lawns in tree-lined neighborhoods imply a domestic ideal of beauty and security, but Aubrey suggests that acquiring and maintaining this pristine environment exacts a heavy price. These orderly landscapes mirrored by orderly interiors offer scant comfort for the anxiety of their inhabitants."

Daniela Cavazos Madrigal: Tarararara

July 8 through 29, 2018
"Tarararara, is a series of narratives exploring Cumbia — a popular genre of music in Mexico, where its dance-until-you-drop rhythm is at the center of many familial gatherings. Daniela Cavazos Madrigal pays homage to the heredity of Cumbia by investigating an important part of her cultural identity. She breaks down the language used in Cumbia songs, filtering Spanish lyrics through Google Translate and rediscovers meaning through the distortion. Cavazos Madrigal uses mostly heirlooms belonging to her late grandfathers and relatives, as well personal and found objects, to construct this project. Tarararara is the syllabic manifestation of a quinceañera and carne asada on a Saturday night."

From the Page to the Street: Latin American Conceptualism in the Blanton’s Collection

June 30 through August 26, 2018
"In the 1960s–70s, artists in Latin America participated in the profound reorientation of art traditions known loosely at the time as Conceptualism. From the Page to the Street illustrates the diverse forms these new practices took – including photographs and video, mail art, poems, Xerox copies, publications, and proposals – and the critical charge they carried during a tumultuous time. Paying special attention to the role of drawing in this radical transition, this exhibition proposes that Latin American artists shared a vision for the potential of art to build politicized constituencies, moving their work off the page and into the street."

"In 2013, Lenka Clayton attempted to objectively measure the furthest distance she could be from her toddler son in three environments: a city park, the alley behind their Pittsburgh home, and in the aisles of a local supermarket. The trio of videos humorously underlines the challenging judgment calls that parents make about how much autonomy to give their children. In conjunction with the Clayton video installation in the Film & Video Gallery, a selection of Clayton’s Typewriter Drawings will be on view in an adjacent gallery."
