The second summer experiment at UNC Charlotte’s Projective Eye Gallery will be revealed tomorrow Friday, July 12. Dedicated to the collaboration and experimentation of UNCC’s College of Arts + Architecture faculty, this year’s exhibition, “Aggregation Transformation,” is a site-based art installation designed to interact with viewers. The exhibition will run until September 13th.
Four faculty members came together to create this unique multi-faceted structure fabricated of steel wire and bands and covered with a “skin” of mesh strips: Ryan Buyssens, Kelly Carlson-Reddig, Heather Freeman, and Erik Waterkotte. “Aggregation Transformation” was chosen by an external panel comprised of Brad Thomas, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Mint Museum; Peter Nisbet, Chief Curator of the Ackland Art Museum, UNC Chapel Hill; and Irina Toshkova of the New Gallery of Modern Art, Charlotte.
The opening reception is from 6-8 p.m. and will include a discussion with all four of the collaborative artists. Triptych Collective will perform at the opening. The Collective is a group of artists that blend live music, dance and visual art in non-traditional spaces to generate thought-provoking performance art.
