WUG Artist Talk by Michaela Pilar Brown
Monday, Oct. 27, 8 pm
Rutledge 119
FREE \ cultural event \ open to the public
Please join Winthrop University Galleries as we welcome artist Michaela Pilar Brown to our campus to discuss her self titled exhibition currently on display in the Rutledge Gallery. The talk will be held in room 119 Rutledge at 8 pm on Monday, Oct. 27.
Brown considers memory, myth, ritual, desire and the spaces the body occupies within these vignettes. The narratives move between past, present and surreal projections of the future, sometimes occupying these spaces simultaneously. Brown's work explores the ritualized use of common objects and architectural spaces, often queering size orientation or form to blur the line between memory, dream and experience, plotting the relationship between normative considerations of the body and its function in specified spaces.  This exhibition is for mature audiences.

Born in Bangor, Maine, Brown was raised in Denver, Colorado and currently resides in Columbia, South Carolina. She studied sculpture and Art History at Howard University and was the Fall 2011 Harvey B. Gantt Artist in Residence at the McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte, North Carolina, a 2012 recipient of an Artist Grant from The Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont and the 2014 recipient of the Artists’ Ventures Initiative (AVI) from the South Carolina Arts Commission.
Her work will be showing through November 14, 2014.
