It Becomes That: Molly Barnes, Woodrow Clark, Soyoon Park, Nicholas Valerio and Timo Yates
April 22 - May 1, 2013Opening reception Thursday April 25, 5-7 pm
Helen Lindhurst Gallery, Watt Hall
The University of Southern California Roski School of Fine Arts is pleased to present works from eleven graduating seniors in a back-to-back pairing of exhibitions in the Helen Lindhurst Gallery. It Becomes That presents art’s definition as objects or experiences that embody the process of change, growth and translation, highlighting the very essence of the artist creative process: when one thing – material, thought, memory –transforms into, or becomes, a separate and different material object.
The two shows explore the way in which the artists light and do not light the moment when the original material or understanding becomes something new, whether embodied within the art object itself or the experience of the viewing audience. The unique combination of disparate photographs and paintings as well as installation and video works, investigate an inverse relationship, revealing a fresh perspective on the physical installation of works in the gallery space.
Special hours Sat April 13 10am – 5pm
Closed Saturday and Sunday, unless noted above.
