Opening Reception: Neither One or Somewhere in Between

February 5th, 2018

For her first solo show in the Twin Cities, Tia-Simone Gardner has gathered elements of her work in photography, architecture, and biomythography. Through visual and textual traces, the work—to be exhibited at FilmNorth’s Marsden/Gustafson Gallery February 10–April 26—explores a tertiary space between life and death through a non-linear conversation, an interview between Gardner, Mayotte Capécia, and Diouana (Gomis), two fictional subjects that form the work of two postcolonial intellectuals Frantz Fanon and Ousmane Sembéne. Please join us for an opening reception Saturday, February 10, 5:30–7:30 pm. There will be an artist talk at 6 pm. Click here for more info.
