Alum at Carnation Contemporary
Alum Zach Clark (MFA 2016), Rachel Deane (MFA 2019) and Angela Willetts (MFA 2016) are participating in the group show “On the Tip of My Tongue” at Carnation Contemporary in Portland Oregon. The show is co-curated by another alum, Kristin Hough (MFA 2016).
“On the Tip of My Tongue” explores the space that resides between thought and speech, intent and action, self and other, land and nation. The work in this exhibition mines topics such as the educational-industrial complex, the undocumented experience of resilience and resistance, and the uneasiness of occupying a motionless body while being hurled through the air in flight. Katherine Spinella (Portland, OR) and Kristin Hough (Los Angeles, CA) curated together multimedia works from 34 artists throughout the United States that use performance, symbols, instructions, transcriptions, lists, sequencing, and the materiality of a single phrase in order to comment on and connect to language. This exhibition reminds us that language impacts our bodies as a set of unfixed relationships, and that our unconscious, whether personal or collective, recalls images first.
“On the Tip of My Tongue” runs from December 7 to December 22, 2019.
