'Unlived Histories' at Flanders Gallery

UNLIVED HISTORIES October 3 – October 28, 2012 Curated by Lauren Turner While skepticism towards the historical record is not specific to contemporary society, today’s information age does allow for an unparalleled transfer of information that enables an increased engagement with these issues. Digitized archives, open-source materials, and specialized supply vendors enable casual users to acquire specific information and resources regarding their interests. Lauren Adams is able to track and incorporate the Elizabethan imagery that she explores in her Lost Colony Project, often in specialized media like mass-produced fans or custom-printed fabrics. UNLIVED HISTORIES examines artists using the idea of history, as opposed to specific historic events, as inspiration. Artists include: Lauren F. Adams, Keliy Anderson-Staley, Edward Bateman, Amelia Bauer, Eric Beltz, Jen Blazina, Scott Campbell, Noah Doely, Danielle Durchasiag, Anna Fidler, Sebastian Martorana, Lori Nix, Randy Regier, Adam C. Ryder, Christopher Schneberger, Derek Toomes, Frohawk Two Feathers and Roger Wood.]]>
