Come to the Laundry King for the opening reception for Bare Bones, an exhibition of artwork curated by Elizabeth Ennis and Naomi Teppich, from 5-8pm on Friday, June 3. The exhibition will on display Saturdays and Sundays from 12-6pm through June 26.
We revere skulls and bones but we’re scared of them, too; they are grotesque reminders of our own mortality and vivid symbols of death. Whether treated as comical or macabre, human bones make us uncomfortable. Fossils, however, are another story. We are fascinated with fossils, which represent a faraway world where wondrous creatures lived and breathed. They evoke the passage of time and its imprint on the material world. In Bare Bones, artists react to the many aspects – human, cultural, social, aesthetic – of human, animal, and prehistoric bones. Featuring work by Robyn Almquist, Don Downs, Eva Drizhal, Elizabeth Ennis, Emanuelle Gauthier, Jan Harrison, Lynne Mayocole, Lorena Salcedo-Watson, David Sandlin, Michael Staats, and Naomi Teppich.
