Fall 2020 Exhibition Calendar

September 8 - October 9, 2020


The word “factitious” means artificial or manufactured — made by human beings, often in imitation of something natural and often made up for a particular occasion. Artists in this exhibition are pushing on and engaging with truth, fiction, facts, narrative and source material from a variety of perspectives as they explore the idea of what makes this moment so particularly relevant in terms of separating fact from the fictitious. These works allow us to reconsider, recontextualize and analyze the world around us in new, unique, and interesting ways.

“Lexington in the Time of COVID-19” is an ongoing project of uncertain length by Kurt Gohde and Kremena Todorova, who are Transylvania professors and social practice artists. They document the ways members of the Lexington, Kentucky, community are enduring and sustaining themselves and others during the quarantine. On March 16, Kurt and Kremena began photographing individuals, couples, and families outside of their homes (always from a safe distance). During their visits, the collaborative artists spend time talking with the people they photograph, writing down notes to better understand and share our lived experience with social distancing. These notes become stories that are shared on Facebook, and they are the source of text paired with each image in this exhibition. As presented by Morlan Gallery, “Lexington in the Time of COVID-19” is a selection of images from Kurt and Kremena's larger project, which will continue until we are no longer asked to socially distance and have put an end to the spread of the virus.

“Near and Far” is an exhibition of fine art prints created for a print exchange hosted by Morlan Gallery. Print-based artists were asked to create works centered around the theme of: How do we sustain ourselves and others emotionally and physically? In the past several months, it has become increasingly important to understand our needs and seek to connect with and support each other. “Near and Far” showcases prints from a variety of media related to ideas such as  home, place, touch, distance, gardening, cooking, exercise, meditation, mental health, reading, isolation, screen time, loved ones and habits.
