Something Pretty

Gallery

Work by Sadie Barnette, Tiffany Calvert, Angela Dufresne, Justin Favela, Stephen Rolfe Powell and HuiMeng Wang ------- As an adjective, pretty has many connotations. To be pretty is to be aesthetically pleasing, sensorially charming, and relatively beautiful. Yet the relative nature of that beauty also often renders things that are “pretty” as diminutive, decorative, and vapid. Yet even with this dismissal, we, as human beings, are invariably drawn to things that are pretty, and their aesthetic pleasure has the capacity to carry with it a further exploration of many theoretical, political, and practical issues. This exhibition seeks to complicate the notion of “pretty” by bringing together artists whose work engages with the aesthetics of prettiness, yet undercuts the diminutive and dismissive connotations of the label. This exhibition curated by Transylvania University assistant professor of art history, Emily Elizabeth Goodman, Ph.D.

Data, Mine

Gallery

Work by Hasan Elahi and Laurie Frick ----- “Data, Mine”, the title of this two-person exhibition featuring the work of data visualization artists Hasan Elahi and Laurie Frick, references the methodology and relationship the artists have with data. In the early 2000s, Elahi started an elaborate project in self-surveillance when he was mistakenly put on a terrorist watch list. Elahi’s work examines issues of surveillance, citizenship, migration, transport, and challenges of borders and frontiers. Frick, who advocates, “Take your data back and turn it into something meaningful,” analyzes online dating information resulting in colorful installations addressing friendship.-----Special Events and Hours Lexington Gallery Hop | Friday, Jan. 18, 5-8 p.m. Closed Monday, January 21 for MLK Day Art Talk with Laurie Frick and Hasan Elahi |Thursday, Jan. 24, 6 p.m., Carrick Theater with a reception to follow in Morlan Gallery, 7-8 p.m. Evening Hours | Saturday, Feb. 16, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
