Kottie Gaydos to show at Current Space Gallery

OPENING RECEPTION: UNFIXED /// MATISSE IN BATH…

Current Space is proud to present Unfixed, a solo exhibition by Kottie Gaydos and Matisse in Bath, paintings by Se Jong Cho and sound by Marc Miller. Please join us for the opening reception.

Unfixed –
Kottie Gaydos

This work investigates the intrinsic role vulnerability plays in the healing process, and probes the instances in which the efforts of systems designed to protect and withstand harm, fail. Once stacked, ceramic vessels dipped in cyanotype, a light sensitive photographic emulsion, and left unfixed embody the liminal space between being and failure. These cairns function as counterpoints to archival pigment prints of unfixed cyanotype paper, framed and hung low on the walls. Coated with cyanotype emulsion, the frames are inherently photographic and bear witness to the environments in which they are hung, personifying the experience of the body as affected by internal and external forces. In concert, the cairns and photographic field of blue are a portal into a dialogue between the ideal and problematic body.

Kottie Gaydos holds an MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art and a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). She serves as Curator and Editor-in-Chief of Special Publications at the Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography (DCCP) in addition to teaching at MICA and at Towson University. Her work has been exhibited across the U.S., China, and Japan and is in private and public collections, including the Cranbrook Museum of Art. Recent exhibitions include the 40th Annual Paper in Particular, Curated by Eric Lutz, Columbia College Sidney Larson Gallery, Columbia, MO, and Sentinels (III) : Organize, part of The Neon Heater’s Year Seven: The Temperature, curated by Ian Breidenbach, The Provincial, Kaleva, MI.

Opening Reception: March 30th, 7-10pm
Exhibition Duration: March 30th – April 20th
Gallery Hours: Fridays and Saturdays, noon – 4pm

MICA Photo faculty member shows in Germany

Lynn Silverman exhibits in Hamburg, Germany…

MICA Photo faculty, Lynn Silverman, is currently exhibiting work in a group exhibition in Hamburg, Germany. The exhibition is entitled, “Outlook-Insight: Windows in the Arts”. Lynn’s recent work has centered around windows and light as visual metaphor. 

Poster announcement for exhibition, “Outlook-Insight: Windows in the Arts”, in Hamburg, Germany.

Here is a statement from the curators:  “The window has played an important role in the visual perception of the world. As a mediating threshold, as a frame, the window reveals details of the surroundings, while at the same time providing insights into intimacy and privacy. As a point of contact with the outside world, the window is crucially involved in our relationship with landscape and nature.  Contemporary art explores this opening from inside and outside, exploring boundaries and permeability. The mutual views, which can be interrupted and disturbed by window glass through reflections, are as much in focus as the light itself, which is able to cross the glass barrier. The reality of nature on “the other side” is also questioned. The window becomes an artistic experimental field in which the relationships between inside and outside, reality and deception are explored. On the occasion of its reopening, the Museum Sinclair-Haus shows contemporary films, photographs, installations, paintings, drawings and silhouettes around the window.”

Lynn Silverman’s work installed in Hamburg gallery.

Congratulations, Lynn!
