Currencies

The Herndon Gallery at Antioch College is pleased to announce the opening of its newest exhibition, titled Currencies, presenting recent work by Antioch Arts faculty and resident scholars. The exhibition will continue through February 14, 2014.

The Antioch College arts division has seen its faculty grow from just one to five in the past two years, and includes positions in painting, drawing, sculpture, media, and performance.  In addition, there are a number of former faculty working in arts and performance affiliated with the re-opened college. We would like to introduce our growing and vibrant arts community to the region by way of this exhibition.

The title Currencies reflects our unfolding present.  Much of the work is being created for this exhibition, and demonstrates an openness to risk, experimentation, and responsiveness to site.  Sara Black, assistant professor of visual arts, was part of the group of six inaugural faculty hired in 2011 when the College re-opened, with a responsibility to anchor the arts division. She brings an arts practice that is engaged with time-based construction, installation and performance. Her piece, Reconstructing the Fold, will evolve throughout the duration of the exhibition and will involve building, disassembly and reconstruction of a structure, during scheduled gallery hours.  

Raewyn Martyn is a visiting assistant professor of visual arts, whose work bridges painting, sculpture and installation. She is creating a large painting on the gallery wall that will change over the duration of the show, destabilizing the painted image and architectural surface.   

Gabrielle Civil, associate professor of performance, is a black female poet, and conceptual and performance artist.  She is creating an installation titled Kinds of Performing Objects I’ve Been that will include performance documentation, objects such as keepsakes and paintings on glass and tin.  She will be in the space occasionally throughout the exhibition, interacting with gallery patrons, telling stories and performing gift exchanges. 

Charles Fairbanks is a wrestler, filmmaker, and assistant professor of media arts.  He will be presenting two short films titled The Men and Wrestling with my Father, as well as a series of photographs titled Do you know the cause of your problems and suffering?, which he made in rural Chiapas, Mexico, and depicts the tensions between the traditions of the indigenous Zoque culture and modernity. 

Michael Casselli, is a media and installation artist, and instructor of media arts.  He is creating an audio installation titled wishing we had talked, there’s so much we left unsaid, which is a reflection on caring for his mother who was dying of cancer in 1996. 

Nevin Mercede, professor of painting and printmaking at the former Antioch College is presenting two triptychs from a series titled Ovation that explores the interpretation of gestures. Dennie Eagleson, creative director of the Herndon Gallery and former professor of photography, is presenting two series made from outdated Polaroid film that emerge out of her deep connection with her land and caring for bees.
