Sondra Perry Exhibition and Artist talk

March 17 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

March 17 – April 29, 2018
Opening Reception: March 17, 6–9pm
Gallery Hours: Fri / Sat / Sun, 12–5pm

An exhibit of interactive sculptural and installation works and an artist talk by Houston-based artist Sondra Perry as she explores the intersection of technology and black history. Both are curated by Julia Greenway, Curator in Residence.

Perry raises questions of identity in conversation with embodiments of labor, desire, and materiality. She will use the Disjecta exhibition to explore her interest in “blackness as a technology, changing and adapting, through the constant surveillance and oppression of black folks.”

Perry will present multiple works referencing sci-fi/horror video game/movie culture, incorporating the vibrant chroma key blue to reference the production of special effects, allowing the viewer’s physical body to seamlessly slip into the artist’s imagined worlds. Through the integration of digital platforms into installation and context-based artworks, Perry raises the questions of identity in conversation with contemporary articulations and embodiments of labor, desire, and materiality.
