Project 1: Ariel Lavery & Liz Clayton Scofield
February 14 through March 22, 2014
Project 1: Ariel Lavery and Liz Clayton Scofield is Zephyr Gallery’s first proposal-based exhibition curated by Independent Curator Suzanne Weaver. While the art of both Lavery and Scofield is informed by critical ideas and issues of art today – identity, body, and narrative, for example – they each bring their personal experiences to the making and presenting of their work. This in turn gives the work resonance and deeply engages audiences on many levels, from the physical to the psychological.
Project 2: Defining Installation
April 4 through May 24, 2014
Project 2: Defining Installation is Zephyr Gallery’s second proposal-based exhibition in the series and the first collaboration with the University of Louisville. Curated by Susan Jarosi, Associate Professor of Art History, and students in her installation art seminar, Project 2 features original works of installation art commissioned from four local artists: Jenna Richards, Rosalie Rosenthal, Shohei Katayama, and Michael Ratterman. These four artists were charged with creating a work of installation that explored one or more of the “defining” aspects of the medium – scale, the production of space, space and its relation to the body, immersion, site specificity, to name just a few. Focusing on the exhibition’s theme as well as the history, theory, and praxis of installation art over the last forty-plus years, the students in the seminar have made their own contribution by producing an exhibition catalog and installing a study space in the gallery that includes a specially selected library of texts on installation art.
Project 2: Defining Installation opens April 3 and runs through May 24, 2014, Thursday–Saturday, 11:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m., or by appointment. The gallery will also be open for the First Friday Trolley Hops on April 4 and May 2, from 6:00–9:00 p.m. A Hite Art Institute sponsored Artist Reception will be held on April 11 from 5:00–7:00 p.m at Zephyr Gallery.
