ZHULONG GALLERY PRESENTS A SOLO EXHIBITION BY
ARTIST RECEPTION JANUARY 10, 2015 6-‐9
[Dallas, TX – January 5, 2015] – Zhulong Gallery is pleased to announce the artist reception for a solo exhibition by artist lauren woods on December 10 from 6-‐9PM and running through January 24. woods will present new work and selected projects from her recent practice to mount a dynamic exhibition including video, sound interventions, works on paper, and traditional pieces.
A noteworthy conceptual artist working in both the public realm and institutional spaces, woods follows her successful intervention, Dallas Drinking Fountain #1, a multi media 'monument' situated in the Dallas Records Building, with an exhibition that typifies her highly relational body of work. Continuing to explore subject and object through the lens of color, multi-‐channel video works, ongoing since 2000, and new sculptures set up scenarios for viewership that reverberate from the works' content and out into the viewers individual experience of the present. A forceful feedback loop plays out between viewership as subject matter and the encounter of the works. Redacted stills, collaged film clips, and other methods of assemblage and erasure are creative interventions on found moving images and other forms of visual culture, shifting or adding to the construction and picturing of the other.
Born in Kansas City, MO and raised in Dallas, TX, woods earned her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work has been exhibited in noteworthy institutions throughout the United States and internationally, including Washington D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Dallas, Miami as well as Puerto Rico, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Mali and France. woods is also a City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs Public Art Committee Artist Nominee for 2015-‐2017. She has also received grants and awards from numerous institutions including The Tribeca Film Foundation, College Art Association, Alliance of Artists Communities, and the San Francisco Foundation.
lauren woods’ exhibition will run until January 24, 2015 at Zhulong Gallery, which is open Tuesday-‐Saturday 10A-‐5P. For more information or to schedule a private viewing, please email
