September 25–December 19, 2010
Barbara Lattanzi, Lorraine O’Grady, Rodney Taylor, Kurt Von Voetsch, and Elinor Whidden
This biennial, multi-venue exhibition will present the work of outstanding artists from Western New York and Southern Ontario, responding to the regionally relevant theme Alternating Currents and its undercurrent of utopian power, both literal and metaphorical; reclamation or use of natural assets; visions of the future and the past; technological progress or intrusion; and the diverse demographic and social constructs of this region.
A curatorial collaboration of twelve regional museums and galleries, Beyond/In Western New York 2010: Alternating Currents will, for the first time, feature the work of artists from outside the region, blurring the local with the global and challenging the assumptions of what these distinctions mean today, when all artists are both. Featured artists at the UB Anderson Gallery are Barbara Lattanzi, Lorraine O’Grady, Rodney Taylor, Kurt Von Voetsch, and Elinor Whidden.
