William Austin and Nicholas Wade
April 7, 2018
April 7, 2018 WILLIAM AUSTIN addressed the politics of image making by discussing the theoretical background motivating his recent work. His talk focused on the role of metaphysics in artistic and cultural production; the critical concept of "mutt" as it pertains to issues of decolonization, indigenous futurity, and mestizo cultural worldview. The presentation was a precursor to his exhibition with One Night Stand.
NICHOLAS WADE discussed his concurrent exhibition in the Gallery at Casa called Study of Kept Light and Other Work. The series of sculpture and painted assemblages on display direct the fall of light across their surfaces to prompt consideration of optics, illusion and the experience of observing a work of art.
