Allen Killian-Moore and Tim White (new work for Earth Day)
We are pleased to announce two new exhibits opening in conjunction with the Art for Earth Day Gallery Hop on April 21 – a photography exhibition with five new photographs by Tim White and an art film installation by filmmaker Allen Killian-Moore. The two adjacent exhibitions pres
Mr. White's photography exhibition, showing in Gallery A, represents an emergence of new work after a period of reflection following the completion of several large projects including the NEMBA award winning book and exhibition “In and Out of Context.” Of the new work, Mr. White quotes Maggie Nelson, from Bluets: "The part I do remember: that the blue of the sky depends on the darkness of empty space behind it. As one optics journal puts it, "The color of any planetary atmosphere viewed against the black of space and illuminated by a sunlike star will also be blue." In which case blue is something of an ecstatic accident produced by void and fire.”
In Gallery B, the installation film “Permanent State of Exception” by Allen Killian-Moore, “captures images of the present, on a medium from the past, in order to contemplate a possible future.” The film is composed of original footage, gathered over a period of four years in Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Duluth, rural Wisconsin, and along the north shore of Lake Superior. Allen’s sound design features portions of salvaged radio broadcasts taken throughout the last century, while the musical score was written and performed by Andy McCormick, a founding member of the Minneapolis-based ensemble Dreamland Faces.
