The Fellows Converge: The Obstructions Gallery Talk

This exhibition is a collaboration with the Hamiltonian Gallery along with Hamiltonian Artists, a non-profit career incubator for the next generation of contemporary visual artists. It features new work by the 2012 Hamiltonian Fellows: Amy Boone-McCreesh, Milana Braslavsky, Billy Friebele, Nora Howell, Annette Isham, Matthew Mann, Joshua Wade Smith, Timothy Thompson, and Jerry Truong. The theme of the exhibition is based on the Jorgen Leth / Lars Von Trier documentary, "The Five Obstructions." The Fellows made obstructions for each other's work based on a summer 2012 studio visit and discussion. The obstructions operate as useful critiques of existing work as well as a challenge to future work. This playful yet meaningful exercise offered each artist the opportunity to step outside of self-imposed rules, habits, or routines. AU studio art professor and co-director of AU's MFA program Tim Doud served as the mentor for the group.

Admission is free.
