Home Inside Out

  • Waiting Room at Gallery 71 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Home Inside Out explores the idea of “home” not just as the sheltering eave and
centering hearth, but as the site of alienating dynamics of loss and the slippage of
identity, of barriers to ownership, of separation and longing. The artists in this
exhibition reflect on the idea of sheltering space, from personal, collective, national or
cultural perspectives. Home becomes a discursive arena in which inside and outside
spaces hold specific social and cultural associations that can be subtended or
subverted through artistic representation.

Surface of Revolution: A Bohemian Press Retrospective

  • Paul Whitney Larson Gallery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

A torus is a geometric shape composed of a surface of revolution generated by revolving a circle in three-dimensional space around an axis coplanar with the circle. In their physical forms, tori most resemble donuts. Bohemian Press, a fifteen year old printmaking collective organized and maintained by students at the University of Minnesota, has curated this show with the torus in mind; both as a nod to our club’s donut mascot, and as a form that encompases ideas of revolution, pushing boundaries, and fighting for change. The process of printmaking involves the creation and alteration of a screen or matrix in order to reproduce imagery or texture onto another substrate. This process leaves both a physical impression as well as a lasting concept for viewers to engage with. In essence, printmaking is a process of reproducible surface alteration. Whether it be the definition of printmaking, the materials they use, or the subject matters they deal with, Bohemian Press members are constantly redefining the boundaries of printmaking and the communities it can influence. As an all-inclusive collective, Bohemian Press features GLBTQIA, POC, women, and emerging artists and encourages members to use their work as a vessel for activism and changemaking. Practiced by the members of Bohemian Press, the medium of printmaking, much like the torus, is composed of a process of revolution, not just a form.

Soft Boundaries at Gamut Gallery

"In identity and expression, toughness and tenderness aren’t typically synonymous. To be soft and vulnerable is a sign of weakness, to be open is seen as an invitation to be manipulated. We place boundaries as a way to give us a sense of structure and security – emotionally, mentally, physically – but what happens when these boundaries get muddled? How does one embrace emotionality through identity? If vulnerability is the birthplace of joy, creativity, belonging and love, why is it so difficult for us to be tender and find calmness in the unknown?

For Soft Boundaries, seven artists explore how the vulnerable narrative can be used as an act of resistance, liberation and healing. Through the mediums of illustration, photography, video and audio installation, mixed media, book art, and sculpture, the artists present the distortions which keep us from wholly seeing ourselves and others, and the limitations when identity is categorized into the binaries of hyper-visible and invisible. Examining intersecting identities through art, Soft Boundaries sets out to showcase the power of radical softness as a weapon and the strength and truth in allowing ourselves to be fully open." – Gamut Gallery
