UICA, Michiganís largest multidisciplinary contemporary arts center, is well-known as a venue for innovative, cutting edge art. The new exhibitions opening February 28 at UICA are great examples of what is new and edgy in the world of contemporary visual art.
Sculptor and installation artist, Monica Bock brings her work to the Race Street Gallery at UICA. Bock's work explores shadowed and sometimes disdained details of physical life and references the physical human body. The sculptor uses substance metaphorically, crossing media and disciplinary boundaries, incorporating photography, video, sound and even parts of the human body to create her installations.
Installation artist, Linda Wysong will be featured in the In-Space at UICA. Wysong presents work that strives to function on a direct and intuitive level; looking at the world as more than a collection of individual objects, examing relationships that are frequently unseen, such as the subterranean system of pipes under our city streets and its similarity to the human arterial system.
The Photography of Lara Parent will be exhibited in UICA's Front Street Gallery. These chromogenic photographs began with an initial curiosity and questions about how objects and liquids interact with water. Images explore the inherent beauty in the stability and instability of objects and liquids as they react to the water's surface and depth.
