(SUB)URBAN

 

Curated by Matthew McLaughlin

 

Featuring work by Amze Emmons, Yoonmi Nam, Benjamin Rogers, Nick Satinover, Christine Buckton Tillman, and Sang-Mi Yoo.

 

October 30–December 16, 2017     Opening Reception Wednesday, November 1, 5–7 pm, Free and Open to the Public 

 

This fall, the Stamp Gallery at the University of Maryland, College Park, presents (Sub)Urban, an exhibition presenting works by six contemporary artists who question the reality of suburban and urban contexts through humor, satire, and irony. Through a combination of print, painting, installation, and sculpture, (Sub)Urban explores our contemporary surroundings and the underlying psychology of our modern living environments. These artists work in varying media, but their underlying interests coalesce around our diverse experiences of space, identity, consumption, and labor as immigrants, transplants, and minorities living in the contemporary built environment of late capitalism. They examine items from our houses and our streets, presenting them in new ways and bringing new associations to them, and in the process they uncover unexpected narratives that shape the ways we dwell within the rush of modern life. The exhibition is curated by Matthew McLaughlin.

(Sub)Urban is on view at the Stamp Gallery at the University of Maryland, College Park, October 30 through December 16, 2017. An opening reception will take place on November 1, 5–7pm, in the Stamp Gallery. This event is free and open to the public.
