Opening Reception: Rana Young, Terttu Uibopuu, Ebony G. Patterson

Friday, February 23, from 5 to 7 pm.

On view: February 23 – April 1, 2018

Titled after Terttu Uibopuu’s most recent series of photographs, E.S.E. (East South East) is the largest solo exhibition of the New York-based artist’s work to date. The exhibition features twenty-five photographs taken throughout the United States and Estonia, each revealing in its human, natural, or architectural subjects a quiet fortitude amidst the adversity of ongoing recovery from political occupation, natural disaster, or recession.

they were… presents mixed-media works and a three-channel video by Ebony G. Patterson, an artist based in Kingston, Jamaica and Lexington, Kentucky.

The Rug’s Topography presents selected photographs from Lincoln, Nebraska-based artist Rana Young’s 2015–2017 series of the same name. Young refers to the photographs as “blended self-portraits” of herself and her former partner of six years. They were made as she and her partner navigated both the dissolution of the romantic portion of their relationship and one partner’s decision to transition from male to female.
