(from the press release)
RedLine is pleased to announce the exhibition Imagined Realities, which will be held at Denver’s Sustainability Park (SPark) as an auxiliary exhibition for the 2013 Biennial of the Americas. The temporary exhibition, curated by Cortney Lane Stell, is dedicated to artistic research that explores the intertwined concepts of energy and sustainability.
“Imagined Realities is really about thinking through all of our aesthetic, social, philosophical, and pragmatic relations to the world in which we live,” stated Courtney Lane Stell, guest curator for the exhibition. “Here, artists encourage a critical, reflective, and engaging approach to this topic - a topic that is normally approached through political or commercial avenues. This exhibition is not about answers it’s more about a pluralistic dialogue.”
The featured, regional-based artists in the exhibition include Matthew Harris, Lisa Moses and Adam Brock, Alvin Gregorio, Brian Evans, Trine Bumiller, M12, Daniel Hipolito and Donald Fodness. Seven sculptural works will engage the concept of sustainability and humanity’s relation to the earth and nature. The artworks within the exhibition were selected for their ability to broaden definitions of sustainability as well as illuminate and discuss current ideas in relation to art disciplines. The exhibition aims at producing a diverse art-viewing experience for the public. These many perspectives can be seen in the range of artist’s consideration of energy – from the entropic energy created by compost, to solar energy, and even the energy of human thought or reflection.
Imagined Realities will be hosted at SPark, a community, education and green industry resource located in the heart of Downtown Denver. The opening reception for RedLine members will be held on Wednesday July 17 at 6 pm, followed by a public reception from 7-10 pm. This exhibition is free and open to the public.
