2016-2017 Solo Exhibition Series
June 1 - August 19, 2015


Women & Their Work seeks artists who create inventive, high-caliber contemporary art that breaks new ground or proposes innovative approaches to form and content. Selections are based on an evaluation of the work you submit; we look for a strong, consistent aesthetic vision. We encourage selected artists to create new work; no work that has previously been exhibited in Austin will be accepted for exhibition. The work in the application should demonstrate that you are capable in vision and scope of creating a powerful solo exhibition that commands the 1,700 square foot gallery.

 

Women & Their Work requests applications for our 2016 - 2017 Solo Exhibition Series.

Kira Lynn Harris
Glittering Dystopias
July 11 - August 29, 2015

Opening Reception:

In this exhibition, Kira Lynn Harris will create new site specific works examining visual representations of the city in contemporary culture.  The artist manipulates light - natural, staged and reflected - while using the existing architecture of the gallery to change the viewer's subjective experience of interior space. The works for this show, both drawings and installations, continue Harris’ exploration of contemporary urban landscapes that have included New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Dubai as well as those depicted in science fiction films from Metropolis to Brazil to Mad Max. These city skylines become source material for asymmetrical and broken grid drawings on paper as well as for a large scale, site specific wall drawing.  The title of the exhibit recalls William Morris’ precursor to contemporary fantasy literature, The Story of the Glittering Plain from 1891.
