2/2017: "No-Place," Gallery Protocal, Curated by Iris Williamson, Gainesville, FL

Gallery Protocol is pleased to present no-place, a group
exhibition curated by Iris Williamson. no-place features
painting, drawing, sculpture, and digital media by Hayley
Barker, Alisa Bones, Andrea Brown, Akina Cox, Brooks Dierdorff,
Natalie Escobar, Jackie K. Johnson, Angélica Maria
Millán Lozano, Jess Perlitz, Nicolas Sassoon & Rick Silva,
Eileen Isagon Skyers, Lindsay Preston Zappas. The exhibition
opens with a reception on February 24 from 8:00PM to
11:00PM and runs through April 7.

In no-place, utopian motifs—such as lush foliage, remote
islands, and the swirling heavens—are confronted by consumerist
objects, sharp thorns, chains, and smokestacks.
The exhibition anticipates and engages the failures that
occur in pursuing an ‘ideal reality.’ As the title suggests,
many works speak to ‘utopia’ as an act of dislocation—from
the particulars of a specific place, or even a specific body.
Abstracted figures negotiate environments composed of
signifiers, and spaces open up for travel beyond the physical
world. no-place invites viewers to consider self-care as
the first step in caring for and creating new worlds.

Now Burning, Border Patrol, Portland Maine, January 6 - March 3, 2017

Now Burning is a group show featuring incense and burners made by over thirty artists from the United States and Canada. Artist-made Incense will be burned in each artist-made burner over the course of the exhibition. Invoking the pragmatic and mystical properties of scented smoke, the exhibition will ceremoniously cleanse the space of previous occupants’ residue. This non-visual announcement will cultivate a meditative, mildly psychoactive atmosphere and prepare the ground for subsequent exhibitions.
