upcoming exhibitions

May 8, 2015 (6p-12a) - Michael Jackson Dance Forever Party! - Elizabeth June Bergman
An evening of Michael Jackson mania, including trivia, a shrine, scholarly papers, and six hours of the King of Pop’s song and dance career as heard through his music and seen through visual and televisual materials. Simultaneously a teenage bedroom/ locker-type collage-aesthetic installation of MJ stuff and an endurance performance piece that considers devotion, stamina, and altered states of consciousness.

May 8-31, 2015 - Looker: a graphic collaboration between women - Taylor Yocom and KT Hawbaker-Krohn
Opening reception: May 9, 6-9pm (Community forum 6-7p)
Looker comprises two photography projects: Guarded by Taylor Yocom unites gendered vulnerabilities, defenses, and notions of self-advocacy by featuring a community of women posing with their keys, mace, and other forms of "keychain self-defense. Nudes Leaked seeks to interrupt the cultural narrative that equates female nudity with weakness, mainstream pornography, and fear. Teaming up with photographer Laurie Haag, Hawbaker-Krohn seeks to give the women in her community an opportunity to demonstrate what nakedness meant to them as individuals and to flesh out (sometimes literally) the distinction between birthday- and power-suits.
