First Friday at Artspace

When: Fri., April 7, 6-10 p.m. 2017

With its multiple display spaces, there is always much to see at Artspace during Raleigh's First Friday gallery walks, and this one is no exception. The local artists with opening receptions this Friday work in divergent mediums, but all, at some level, are concerned with complicated facets of existence. Hooded figures recur in But If the Crime Is Beautiful, Lauren Kalman's exhibit combining sculpture and images drawn from her performance exploring ornament and its relation to female sexuality. Linda Ruth Dickinson's abstract works are inspired by our multisensory experience of the world. In Holding On, Jessica Dupuis, Sarah Malakoff, and Karen Hillier draw upon domestic materials to explore the way homes reflect the layered consciousness of their inhabitants. The site-specific Project Reject Is Underway—a collaboration between Megan Sullivan and Jeff Bell, who is the museum manager of 21c Museum Hotel and half of the team behind the Don't You Lie to Me podcast, similarly transforms the ordinary but with a whimsical intent. And throughout its corridors, Artspace will celebrate thirty years of existence with a retrospective exhibit of works by its member artists. —David Klein
