RECEPTION: PETER SARKISIAN, "MIND UNDER MATTER"



Opening, Saturday June 9, Reception 3-5pm: Exhibition Dates, June 9-July 22, 2018

Named a Master Video Artist in 2007 by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Peter Sarkisian is a new-media artist whose brilliant fusion of video projection and sculpture yields multi-media projects combining rare qualities in cutting-edge contemporary video: fluent postmodern allegory, virtuoso command of the medium, and lean, compelling humanism. Sarkisian’s digital tableaux can be read as real-time riffs on modern life. Sarkisian’s allegory often features a modern-day Everyman familiar from medieval English morality plays, reprised here as the universal yet ordinary human being placed in extraordinary circumstances, mired in trivia or imperiled by some moral dilemma.

Exhibition Dates: June 9-July 22, 2018
