First, don't forget to go to Material tonight: (DOH--I mean in a couple of weeks!)
Material is excited to announce its forty-seventh exhibition: Amanda McKnight and Rebekah Laurenzi: Your Epidermis Is Showing.
The exhibition will run for one night only on Friday, August 28, 2009 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
Your Epidermis Is Showing is an exhibition of new work by Amanda McKnight and Rebekah Laurenzi that plays with the conventional roles of “insides” and “outsides.” Through sculptural installation, McKnight simultaneously conceals and reveals, exploring ideas of identity and perception. Laurenzi’s sculptures present cross-section views of everyday objects, exposing surprising internal patterns.
Both Amanda McKnight and Rebekah Laurenzi live, work and teach in Memphis, Tennessee. Your Epidermis Is Showing is the first of two collaborations for the artists. On September 3rd they will be showing work in One Night Stand in Oxford, Mississippi. For more information visit: www.amandamcknight.blogspot.com and www.rebekahlaurenzi.com.
Material is located at 2553 Broad Avenue. Parking is available on both the north and south sides of Broad Avenue.
I'm pretty sure there's an opening tonight at the P&H. Jason Cole.
