Lori Murphy, Canaday Redacted, a special installation in GearBox Gallery’s Inner Room
January 29 - March 13
Three years ago, Lori Murphy began dismantling and reassembling a volume set of “Metropolitan Seminars in Art” by John Canaday.She was interested in altering his narrative, writing new stories over the old. Part of her process is the continuous rhythm of deconstruction and reconstruction–breaking down this vintage canon of art history from the 1950s and reworking it to her own liking. Murphy ripped out pages, tore them up, obliterate sections with whitewash and graphite, then reassembled the parts until it spoke some truth to me. It has been an ongoing, mysterious search.
The exhibition can be visited every week on Fridays and Saturdays from 12- 5pm.
Masks required and social distancing protocols are in place.
