Behind the Lines: Drawings and Objects by Michael David Hall
"Behind the Lines" is an apt description for the Salt Lake Art Center's exhibition of Hall's drawings and sculptures. What happens behind, and indeed beyond, their physical presence yields the content of these works. Through his mixed-media drawings in particular, Hall endeavors to give form to his subjectivity, to literally draw it as he comes face to face with the objective world. The linear shapes, gestures, and contours of the drawings create complex infrastructures that embody personal states of innocence and discovery. They are insightful testaments to Hal's living int he moment. As transitory self-portraits, however, they ultimately defy containment of his expansive, ever-changing pursuit of knowledge. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space.
The Utah Millennium Project exhibition is the culmination of years of collaborative work on the part of eleven photographers. The group elected to tackle the subject of creating a permanent visual and written record of Utah imagery at the turn of the millennium. As expected, the results are diverse and represent the individual interpretation and creativity of each artist in approaching a complex theme. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space.
People marvel over blind musicians such as Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder, but then their music is so fine you forget they're blind. What, then, of artists nearing the end of their sight? "Blindsight: A New Perspective on Seeing" dispenses with any need of asking that question -- in theory. Instead, it presents works by four painters who started their careers with full vision, only to have it deteriorate almost completely. The result is an exhibit surrounded by questions of whether artistic ideas and visions are more grounded in the mind or the outside world. Salt Lake City native Vojko Rizvanovic adds his paintings to those of artists John Bramblitt of Denton, Texas, George Mendoza of Las Cruces, N.M., and Eric Peterson of Kemah, Texas. Exhibition held in the Street Gallery space.
