Friday, March 18th to Saturday, May 7th, 2011
Over Again presents the work of New York-based Alison Brady, and Washington DC-based Sarah Knobel, emerging artists quickly building international reputations for the photo- and video-based works that wrestle with cultural expectations, ideas of normality, and feelings of anxiety and isolation related to their experiences as women transitioning from carefree to more careful adulthood. It opens Friday, March 18th, 6-9PM at Urban Culture Project Space, 21 E. 12th Street, KCMO.
The exhibition features individual photos from each artist as well as the centerpiece of the exhibition: a new, collaborative video installation, Over Again, which combines aspects of absurdity and wry humor with a low-tech sensibility to create a surreal, fraught space in which the anxious uncertainty of every day is explored. Portraying the activities and imaginings of a housewife within her domestic environment, this work examines issues surrounding aging, work, marriage and motherhood in a manner humorous and disturbing, mundane and cathartic. Visit www.overagain.info for more about Over Again, including a video teaser.
Project Space hours at Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays 12-5pm and Thursdays 11am-6pm.
