Stephen William Schudlich, Director of Exhibitions, will be exhibiting work in Circus, Mar. 28 - May 4 at The Gallery Project in Ann Arbor.
The power of the Circus, both historically and presently, lies in its ability to re-define and challenge our beliefs about the possible: conquering what is dangerous, doing what is thought to be physically impossible, reconstructing what is anatomically “correct”... This exhibition will explore the issues that arise in the context of circus—spectacle, mystery, deception/truth, physical acts of danger and athleticism, sexiness/the grotesque, a fascination with the strange and unusual—and investigate its history, politics and aesthetics, as well as its colors, costumes and performers.
March 28 - May 4
Opening Reception: March 29, 6-9 p.m.
Curated by Erin Garber-Pearson & Joe Levickas
