Public Opening Reception of Plein Air & Silent Spikes

Plein Air
a group exhibition exploring shifting ideas of western landscape, painting, and fieldwork. Traditional plein air painting, which typically involves painting outdoors in a single sitting to capture a vista in a certain quality of light, is taken as a point of departure, to consider the ways in which humans use, observe, record, and commune with the land.
featuring Susanna Battin, Esteban Cabeza de Baca, iris yirei hu, KB Jones, Hillary Mushkin, Sterling Wells, and Paula Wilson
organized by Aurora Tang, Guest Curator.

Silent Spikes is an exhibition by artist Kenneth Tam that investigates the intersections of masculinity, race, and labor. The show examines the underrepresented relationship between the histories of Westward expansion and Chinese immigration in the United States and considers the power of image production and circulation, asking who has been silenced, erased, or left out of the frame.
