“a series of ricochets”

January 3 - February 14

Artwork for an exhibition in the Garage Door Gallery

Artists: Valery Jung Estabrook, nicholas b. jacobsen, Eric-Paul Riege
Curated by: Kara Q. Smith 

This exhibition focuses on recalibration as it relates to the interweaving of conceptual practices and personal trajectories. The works included, both within and beyond their materiality, locate meaning in moments of fallibility or fracture. The works activate multiple dialogues at once, rebounding and deflecting off each other, their physical environment, and the engagement of the viewer. What emerges within this spectrum of discourse is an emphasis on strategies of memory and identity, which underscore the process of calling on the uncertain, forgotten, or erased.

Kara Q. Smith is a professional in the contemporary art world. She has spent the last 13 years working for museums, galleries, and non-profit institutions. She has curated exhibitions, spoken at art fairs and symposiums, officiated workshops and lectures, and written for numerous publications. Throughout her career she has preferenced community-engaging projects and artists who both normalize and complicate notions of identity and place.

Reception: Thursday, February 6, 5 – 7 pm
Curator Talk: Saturday, January 4, 7 pm
