"Mapping the Stage" is a collaborative installation that investigates new ways of making work with tangible, non-photographic materials and celebrates the power of inanimate objects. The project expands Danges' and Johnson's mutual interest in the pre-photographic representation of temporality in Renaissance painting, the relationship between images and objects - notably, the point at which the physical world ends and the image begins - and the unconventional use of photographic materials, processes and ideas.
This fall, The Galleries at Moore College of Art & Design are pleased to present an exhibition by 2016 Moore Visionary Woman Award recipient Meg Saligman. "Our Common Ground" is a non-partisan, participatory installation that uses vivid color, sculpture, and light to reserve a peaceful and resplendent space for dialogue and reflection during this tumultuous election cycle.
The Galleries at Moore invite all students and adventurous artists to bring their one-page-or-less artist statements to receive feedback from local curators, writers, educators, and editors. You'll spend 12 minutes with each consultant, then it's time to move on.
Please join The Galleries at Moore for a screening of "Future Perfect: Time Capsules in Reagan Country" by Daniel Tucker. This event is in conjunction with "Altered States: 2016 Faculty Triennial." Ten years after his death and 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and Ronald Reagan's departure from the office of the President of the United States, this work grows out of an interest in the continued echoes of a speech delivered by Reagan following the end of his governorship in California on August 19, 1976, at the Republican National Convention in Kansas City, Missouri. In this speech, Reagan talks of the difficulty he found in writing a letter for a time capsule to be sealed in Los Angeles and opened 100 years in the future. "Future Perfect" explores Reagan's future-oriented science fiction imagination and rhetoric through visits to Reagan-inspired monuments and time capsules throughout California.
In conjunction with their collaborative installation "Mapping the Stage," join exhibiting artists Micah Danges and James Johnson for an outdoor event featuring a live light and sound performance by Tandem Cascades (Marc Zajack). This event will also celebrate the release of a corresponding exhibition publication with text by Liberal Arts Professor Dr. Maureen Pelta. Copies of the publication and refreshments will be available.
