STUDENT & FELLOWSHIP EXHIBITION
GIBBS CONNORS: WALL PATTERN NUMBER 2 FOR GLASS (#MYSHRINKINGHEAD)
On view through Fall 2015 | Window on Race
A site-specific installation on The Galleries' store-front window, this work addresses the overwhelming importance of money, status and social media in today's society and pays homage to the endless appetite for distraction and the perpetual entertainment that is offered by our ever-evolving portable technologies. Drawing inspiration from domestic objects, precious metals, symbols of wealth, and goods sold to tourists, Connors’ work symbolizes the grotesque and often horrifying nature of ego, status, self-involvement, wealth and narcissism as it manifests itself in social media.
