ONE MINUTE ABSTRACT VIDEO - NEO | NEO: Virtual Abstract Experience
Winthrop University Galleries invites you to submit a one-minute video exploring abstraction in conjunction with the exhibition NEO | NEO – a retrospective of the late Winthrop faculty member David Freeman (1937-2013).

Curated by Arthur Hash

As the artistic approach continues to evolve in light of new technologies, materials, and processes, artists are faced with seemingly endless possibilities.  Emergence will feature works from undergraduate and graduate students across the country that are experimental and thought provoking in nature, evoking notions of mystery and/or discovery or exist outside the realm of conventional studio practices. This exhibition is organized by the Winthrop University Guild of Emerging Metal Designers (GEM).

Ms. Brown will discuss her exhbition on display in the Rutledge Gallery. Brown’s exhibition will include photography, sculpture and installation focusing on cultural hierarchies relating to beauty, and how race, gender and history play into these caste systems. Her most recent work explores home as a physical structure and repository for memories. Brown’s work chronicles beginnings, departures and returns to this symbolic yet physical place, believing it to be the genesis where history, memory and myth are joined.
