Power Vantage features the work of two UR alum, Jeremy Ferris '11 and Magdalena Rieders '16. Both artists often employ surreal approaches in the representation of power but the power they portray and how they execute their work could not be more diverse. Rieders is a mural artist interested in female empowerment through the animalistic portrayal of the human female form - a portrayal that often involves the transition of the surreal into the mundane - the impossible into the familiar.
A mural-scaled work will focus on memory and conjure the importance of intuition. Performative strategies accompany Ferris's exhibition of `Furniture for Mists' a body of small-scale work prints and drawings from 2012-2019 that incorporates New England and upstate New York landscapes and the histories of power in the Northeastern United States. Artist talk, performance and reception will be in the gallery.
The artists will be presenting a talk in the gallery from 4-5 p.m. and a closing reception will follow.
