Lisa Oxley explores “nobody’s land” at Verge Center

Lisa Oxley, a lecturer in studio art this academic year, has a solo exhibition “Terra Nullius,” Latin for “nobody’s land,” at the Verge Center for the Arts in Sacramento starting Dec. 9.

In international law terra nullius is used to designate a territory that has never been subject to the sovereignty of any state: international airspace, oceans beyond the continental shelf, outer space and the planets of the solar system.  Often a swath of land between two contested territories, it points to borders, walls, and issues of citizenry. In this exhibition, Oxley navigates these questions and the in-between space that the title implies through painting installation, architecture and dialogue.

The Los Angeles-based artist has shown at the Torrence Art Museum, the Santa Monica Museum of Art, Otis College of Art and Design and other venues.

An opening reception at Verge, 625 S St., will be held Dec. 9 from 6 – 9 p.m. Oxley will give a 30-minute walk through of the exhibition Dec. 9 at 3:30 pm. And Dec. 10 at 1 p.m.
