2017/2018 Exhibition Calendar

Please Check a Box: Sex, Gender, Identity, and Privacy

For better or worse, sex is seen by many societies as fundamental to an individual’s identity. As our social views progress, and we understand better the biological and social complexity of variation in sex and the related concept of gender, we must ask ourselves, “Why? Just whose business is a person’s sex and gender?”

Featuring work by Lois Bielefeld, Jess Dugan, Jeffrey Morin, and Ben Rinehart
Coordinated in collaboration Positive Voice of Green Bay

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 7, 4:30 - 6:30pm

February 1 - 22, 2018

Joshua Albers and Craig Clifford

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 1, 4:30-6:30pm

Joshua Albers and Craig Clifford explore how contemporary visual culture is shaped by both manual and mechanical processes such as ceramics, and digital media. Their collaborative exhibition looks at ways of capturing and reproducing form through established techniques such as mold-making and casting as well as emerging methods such as scanning and 3D printing. In their work, Clifford and Albers take a single element, such as a pre-existing physical object or a computer-rendered geometric shape, and repeat, manipulate, and arrange it to construct new visual experiences that contrast historical modes of object making with contemporary approaches of industrial mass-production.

March 1 - 29, 2018
