GABRIEL de la MORA: new video

opening reception:
Friday, November 14th: 6-8pm.

November 14, 2008 - January 3, 2009

Conner Contemporary Art is pleased to announce the opening of three solo exhibitions featuring drawings by ZoŽ Charlton, photographs by David Levinthal and video by Gabriel de la Mora.

ZoŽ Charlton presents Family (2008), a new series of large format drawings. Statuesque nude figures drawn from live models portray characteristics of the artist's female cousins, demonstrating diverse personalities within her Florida-based African American family. In these drawings Charlton explores how inherited traits interact with personal choices to define the self. Elaborating naturalistic figural imagery with culturally-laden attributes that reveal individuality, she construes the formation of personal identity as an analog to, or perhaps a model for, artistic creation.

There will be an opening reception for the artist Friday, November 15th from 6-8pm.
