Lucas Foglia: A Natural Order
In 2006, photographer Lucas Foglia began travelling throughout the southeastern United States befriending and photographing communities of people who had chosen to leave mainstream society and live off the grid. His interest in the project stemmed from his own upbringing. Like his subjects, he had grown up on a small farm with parents who had chosen a self-sufficient lifestyle. During his travels, Foglia met a new generation of people who had chosen to live radically independent lifestyles for some very modern reasons––including worries over the current economy, environmental concerns or simply to reduce government interference. A Natural Order showcases the people Foglia met and the communities he visited.
Pablo Gimenez Zapiola: Around the Infinite
Zapiola's Transitions in Life is an animation video composed from a sequence of long exposure photographs of a single subject and then looped. The animation has the effect of appearing infinite and endless, creating a sense of mystery and facilitating a contemplative experience for the viewer.
Mario Zoots: Collages
Denver-based artist Mario Zoots presents a series of photo-based collages. The artist appropriates imagery from a wide range of sources such as 1950’s and 60’s cult films and science fiction novels. The precious scale of the smaller works contrasts with the mass media sources from which they derive.
Also in the Open Shelf Library
Adriana Ramic: Craigslist Assisted Readymades
Adriana Ramić’s Craigslist Assisted Readymades are borne of the artist’s interest in the surfeit of information available in the digital age. For this work, she designed a program that actively searches the “Free Stuff” section on Craigslist websites across the United States. The group of images refreshes every eight seconds, offering a glimpse into the vast range of unexpected goods available for the taking.
On the outside of the museum:
Paolo Cirio: Google Street Ghosts
To create Google Street Ghosts, Paolo Cirio uses life-sized pictures of people found on Google's Street View, posting them to the exterior of buildings at the same spot where they were taken.
To be found on and around MCA and other places in the city.
