False Memory

Exhibition dates: FALL 2020
Location: Rugby Art Gallery & Museum, Central Rugby, Warwickshire, UK
Online Exhibition:

Rugby Art Gallery and Museum is presenting a contemporary art exhibition connected to the theme of False Memory. A false memory is the recollection of something that did not happen or happened differently from the actual events, without consciously intending to deceive. The exhibition seeks to challenge our perception of being able to accurately remember moments from the past and considers the relative ease of creating false memories.

This exhibition will coincide with the display of Lindsay Seers’ Extramission 2 (The Trilogy) that became part of the Rugby Collection in 2011. Seemingly autobiographical yet incoherent, it tells the story of Seers’ upbringing on the island of Mauritius and addresses the artist’s early speechlessness; development of a photographic memory and eventual loss of this ability when she began to talk. Constructing memories, rather than documenting them, Seers poses the questions: Is the camera a tool for documenting and recording, or for creating? Is truth something that can be told or is it experienced? To these questions there is no convincing resolution.

This group exhibition explores the production of fabricated, distorted, or misinterpreted memories. We invited artists to submit artworks that linked with the theme in whatever way inspires them. Such as, Imagined experience against lived experienced, Gist memory, walking memory, nostalgia or any other memory-based phenomena that are linked to the construction and discussion of false memory. Works can be both literal and/or symbolic or can be directly inspired by the themes in Lindsay Seers’ artwork.

Home as Situation

Exhibition Dates: October 1 – 31, 2020
Opening Reception: TBA pending Covid-19 restrictions
Location: Bolivar Art Gallery, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY

Many artists working today are addressing notions of home in unexpected ways, particularly challenging traditional definitions of home and proposing new approaches to understanding its complexity and fluidity. This exhibition seeks to examine where ideas of home intersect with themes of cultural identity/ies, access, refuge, politics of space, labor, community infrastructures, archiving/documenting presence, social (im)permanence, historicizing domestic spaces, diaspora, and many others.


Exhibition Dates: July 17 – October 17, 2020
Opening/Closing Reception: TBA dependent upon Covid-19 restrictions
Location: Salisbury University Art Galleries, Salisbury, MD

HERE/NOT HERE called on artists to capture, explore, and depict  unscrubbed and often unseen places. We looked for artwork that tells the stories not often told about the landscape and architecture that have shaped this place we call here. The liminal spaces, the tension zones, and the hap-hazard, slap-dash, crap-laps. After the exhibit is up, poets will be invited to submit Ekphrastic poems in response to specific art work.

Accepted poems will be published with artwork in the exhibit catalogue. A gallery poetry reading by poets whose works has been selected will take place before the exhibit closes.


Exhibition Dates: May 31 – June 30, 2020

In this changed world the concept of “Walkabout” has taken on new meanings in a quickly shifted context. The simple act of going out walking is a cherished activity while we are isolated. Taking photographs while visually exploring, whether seeking a particular image, or if it’s the experience of adventure that is the destination, as photographers we do this. We experience a sense of awareness from exploring our personal surroundings at home, in a town or city on foot, or driving through the landscape. Walkabout is an exhibition showcasing the banality of the everyday. Photographs submitted for exhibition can range from a detailed exploration of a particular location to a visual documentation of one’s personal interaction with their surroundings. The act of observing our surroundings through capturing the visual qualities of a location portrays a sense of documenting one’s experience. We approach many different ways of describing and documenting location, whether it is exterior or interior space, whether it is captured in detail or from a distance. The works presented in this exhibition will encompass what it means to simply examine a sense of place with the medium of photography.
