Mirrors, monitors, copper and masonite are some of the materials used in four segments of “There is more, but no more of this,” a new installation by Audrey Barcio, UNLV MFA Fine Art candidate. Her midway exhibition is designed to work in the small space of Grant Hall Gallery and the newly painted white walls and polished floors were the artist's own laborious immersive experience. That makes the room frame the paintings, sculpture, video and sound sending out multiple meanings, a connotation based on existential givens of human existence. There's also subtext commenting on those wandering from subjective religious ideals. “By asking us to make connections while examining the beginning and end, it brings us together in the immediate,” writes the artist in her statement. It opened yesterday. The artist reception is March 9, on Friday the 13th, at 6 pm. More at Facebook.
Also in this campus cycle, Shelbi Schroeder "Innocence and Deviance" is all about an artist responding to "notions of purity and corruption in normative sexuality. Using her body as a tool, she intervenes in daily female performance rituals." There will be a performance at 7 p.m. on Friday March, 13. More dates and times at Facebook.
