[salonlb.] invites you to the closing reception of MATERIAL GIRLS: Materiality in a Material World, a group exhibition featuring the works of Théo Bignon, Molly Blumberg, Rachel Hefferan, and Parvin Peivandi, on Friday, November 19th, from 7-11PM.
MATERIAL GIRLS: Materiality in a Material World explores the practices of Théo Bignon, Molly Blumberg, Rachel Hefferan, and Parvin Peivandi, an international cohort of material-based artists, who investigate material as a means to embody the human experience and communicate from an authentic, internal source. These tactile works speak to an indulgence in craft and process. But do not confuse materiality for materialism. Materiality, “the quality or character of being material or composed of matter,” is distinct. Physicality impacts content, and subsequently meaning.
This exhibit deconstructs and reimagines domestic, intimate objects and unconventional raw material embedded with personal narratives and cultural codes, conveying feelings of sexuality, nostalgia, tension, and desire, in addition to the inner workings of microbial life, illustrating the evolutionary correlation between art and science translated into fiber. Materiality in all its manifestations.
MATERIAL GIRLS: Materiality in a Material World runs from September 24 – November 19, 2021.
In adherence with local COVID protocols, masks and social distancing are required for all attendees regardless of vaccination status.
*The exhibition is free to attend but a $10 Suggested Donation will be taken at the door to support future art programming at [salonlb.]. Guests will receive a complimentary drink ticket with their donation.
