Catharine Clark Gallery opens the Fall 2018 season with Beside Me, an exhibition of new graphite drawings by Josephine Taylor. Conceptualized as a “portrait” of her friendship with musician Kaveh Rastegar, Taylor began her newest body of work with a hypothesis: “there must exist a direct correlation between the power of a portrait and the connection between artist and subject.”
Following a fourteen-month period in which she and Rastegar shared music, texts and works in-progress, Taylor produced a dynamic series of works on paper that invite viewers to inhabit a place where time, memory and the limits of material existence collide. Taylor’s works on paper are complemented by a media room presentation of Dylan Diaries (2018), her first video collaboration with interdisciplinary artist Jon Bernson.
In conjunction with Beside Me, Catharine Clark Gallery presents Third Eye Moonwalk at Catharine Clark Gallery, Jon Bernson’s first solo presentation in the gallery’s viewing room. Third Eye Moonwalk at Catharine Clark Gallery (and the related exhibit Third Eye Moonwalk at Minnesota Street Project) is an audio-drama unfolding as an installation based on the opening scene from Bernson’s interdisciplinary story of the same name.
Beside Me and Third Eye Moonwalk at Catharine Clark Gallery are presented as part of BOX BLUR. Founded in 2016, BOX BLUR is an ongoing initiative at Catharine Clark Gallery to bring visual and performing art into conversation in a non-proscenium-based setting.
