Martine Gutierrez: We & Them & Me

When: Wed., June 1 2016

STARTING FRIDAY, JULY 1

MARTINE GUTIERREZ: WE & THEM & ME

"Reality, like gender, is ambiguous because it exists fluidly," writes the rising young artist Martine Gutierrez, a timely message sent to North Carolina by way of Brooklyn. WE & THEM & ME combines three series of Gutierrez's work—photography, video, and installation, each with a lushly oversize sensibility—into a study of the compound self in which the artist is her own subject and motive. Gutierrez often works through the proxies of female mannequins, arraying them among backdrops and props in strikingly composed installations and photographs that turn the gauzy film of glamour sideways to reveal its razor edge. Watch her videos at www.martine.tv, and then go experience the work at CAM Raleigh through August 21. —Brian Howe
