Using photography, sculpture, video and text, the "White Lies, Black Noise" exhibition will feature artists appropriating and modifying iconic images and objects from popular culture that comment on family structure, race, sexuality and politics. Each artist shows how source materials can be used to explore subculture and subtext and question social awareness and relevance. Together, it is all used as a form of departure, exploring the relationship between communicator and receiver, illuminating communal experiences in both marginalized and non-marginalized communities.
In addition, The Rush gallery will also host "LIVE! From New York, a powerful collection of work by Cacy Forgenie--presenting printed and projected images photographed in New York City over the ten-year period between 1998-2008. Led by what he terms an internal compass, Forgenie captures images of the accidents, fist fights, disasters and crime scenes he encounters during his daily routine in and around New York. LIVE! From New York presents never-viewed images from 9/11 and the 2000 Puerto Rican Day Parade. Forgenie employs a variety of image-capturing devices to document these events including cell phones, disposables and point-and-shoots.
