Holly Lay's Midway Exhibition is untitled. That is appropriate for an installation using themes prompted by online images curated by, as she says, an "amateur cyber anthropologist." You may not know the sources of the digital archives she uses to create "memes, cyber culture, representation, appropriation, circulation, femininity, craft and kitsch." It is a collaboration with the unknown and untitled sources, so to speak. The centerpiece is "Myth," a series of latch hook tapestries, and a mural, sourced from pixelated images to revisit how the female form is still objectified for viewing.
