Video classes pop-up exhibition at Lump Gallery

November 10, 2022

GOLF
Lump Gallery
Friday, Nov 18, 6-9pm

Through video and audio installation, GOLF explores the relationship between privatized space and loss in all its forms. In this one-day pop-up exhibition and live sound performance at Lump Gallery, we examine the history and culture of golf in marking boundaries of class, race, and gender through its practice of exclusivity and hetero-patriarchy. GOLF immerses the viewer in the past, present, and future of ecological disaster.

The one-day pop-up exhibition is part of a larger exhibition project by Bill Thelen, called Love Letter, in which he invited different artists to take over the space for one-day events throughout Nov and Dec.  

Artists: Sadie Allen, Nicole Blevins, Maxwell Bryn, Brooklyn De Shazo-Griffin, Noah Gulledge, Sergia Jimenez, Bailey Johnson, Taylor Knoll, Lilian Manning, Payton Mills, Hope Mutter, Gustavo Rios, Nina Sehgal, Taika Sorjonen, Mirai Thorbjornsen, Bronwyn White

Artists are students at UNC Chapel-Hill in Hong-An Truong’s Intermediate/Advanced Video courses

New artwork by Lashayla Stephens in the Alumni Sculpture Garden

November 2, 2021

We have another new artwork in the Alumni Sculpture Garden to celebrate! Come by the Hanes Art Center to see Lashayla Stephens’ Liquid Sunshine (2021). Lashayla says the inspiration for the piece comes from her childhood curiousity, and the iridescent and fluid ranbow spots she would find on the ground after it rained. Nicknamed “liquid sunshine,” the spots are a result of rain mixing with vehicle oil. Her sculpture garden work explores the mix of the beautiful and the disruptive, imagining a larger-scale oil spill in a sensitive environment.
