This week Seattle welcomes visiting artists Alison Brady and Sarah Knobel as they prepare for their exhibition, Over Again, on view at the Kirkland Arts Center from January 7th, 2011 through March 3rd, 2011. Join the artists at the KAC between 6-8pm for the opening reception and a tour of the show. Then catch them again on Saturday for their visiting artist lecture on Saturday, Jan 8th at 2pm, at the Henry Art Gallery. Alison and Sarah will also be teaching a free workshop that morning on video art, preregistration required.
For their Seattle-area debut, New York-based Alison Brady and DC-based Sarah Knobel present a two-person exhibition of photography and video. Both artists work primarily in photography, creating personal and darkly humorous revisions of such classical formats as the portrait and the female nude. Brady and Knobel each contribute large-format, color photographs and, together, present a new collaborative video created for the Kirkland Arts Center exhibition. With the video,Over Again, the artists examine the process of transitioning from carefree to careful adulthood – how expectations, fears and desires alter. Brady and Knobel draw from their own experiences to present views on age, career, marriage, and motherhood.
