Ron van der Ende: A Shallow Wade

A Shallow Wade is the title of a new exhibition that shows Americana distilled through an outsider’s perspective, that of Rotterdam artist Ron van der Ende.  Through his process of assembling large wall-hung collages of wood, he has salvaged doors, furniture, and other building fragments and deconstructed them, leaving worn paint in tact on skinned timber. These parts are collected and cut to fit into[…..]

SunTek Chung

SunTek Chung creates images of identity forged from concepts about culture and technology. Like all of his photographs, SunTek makes a real space for us to examine.

Prop Master

Prop Master, a collaborative one-room exhibition by Susan Harbage Page and Juan Logan, recontextualizes portraits from the permanent collection at the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, SC and other local artifacts by displaying them alongside their own works, although within the institution. Living around the many decorative and luxurious antebellum homes of Charleston is a challenging experience. We see the majesty of architecture, but[…..]

War on Terror: Inside/Out

Photographs from Christopher Sims and Stacy Pearsall turn the War on Terror: Inside/Out, as if showing us its seams. Sims documents American-made Iraqi and Afghan villages, used to train soldiers in North Carolina and Louisiana, in his series Home Fronts: The Pretend Villages of Talatha and Braggistan. Pearsall, a military combat photographer since age 17, presents the facts of her experience, daily life that is[…..]
