The South Dallas Cultural Center will present two new exhibitions by two Texas women with international sensibilities, Wura-Natasha Ogunji and Carris Adams. Art lovers will appreciate how these global artists incorporate their world traveling experiences into their creative process. This gallery opening reception will feature an artist talk from Ogunji.
In the main gallery, Ogunji's show, "That's not the Atlantic (There's a disco ball between us)," is an exhibition of new drawings which includes an installation with video projection as well as small scale works. The exhibition title comes from Ogunji's installation of drawings on large-sheets of architectural sketch paper. Video projections intermittently illuminate areas of the drawing that have been stitched with fluorescent thread with much of the video originating from footage the artist took with her cell phone while in Lagos, Nigeria.
In the small gallery, Adams' “Re-”, illustrates her interest in the signs/signifiers that are consumed within a private space such as one’s home.
The exhibits will be on display through October 25.
