Framed: Kate Gilmore and Lilly McElroy on Space, Place and Boundary

Framed features videos that investigate the space between self and environment, self and other, and the discrepancies between the camera’s frame and the indefinite expanse of life. The exhibition juxtaposes work by Bruce Nauman and Richard Serra with recent videos, including work by Kate Gilmore and Lilly McElroy. In her recorded performances, Gilmore dons feminine clothing as she attempts to navigate self constructed obstacles. McElroy’s videos and photography often engage an unsuspecting audience as she conducts performative interventions in public places. Gilmore and McElroy will discuss their work in a forum moderated by Associate Curator of Contemporary Art Sarah Urist Green. Presented by the IMA’s Contemporary Art Society.

Free; no ticket required; proceed to the event venue.
