Josh Greene and Heather Layton - Opening Reception and Artist's Talks

Character Descriptions is Josh Greene's latest project involving his family. For this particular work he asked his mother, father, wife, older sister, younger sister and younger brother to each write a detailed description of themselves for the purpose of casting actors to play each of them in a video. In a culture addicted to win/win, "we're No. 1" scenarios, Heather Layton's Preparing To Lose drawings are imagined as counter-narratives to the cultural norm.

Artist's talks begin at 8:00 p.m. in the Hallwalls Cinema.

Stephanie Rohlfs
Put One Over

Rohlfs' sculptural gestures are so adroitly specific and contained that each element—a field of color, a drooping form, a slab of shelving—takes on more imminent and emphatic articulation ...
