OBSOLESCENCE: McColl Artist-in-Residence Liz Miller
October 27-November 10
Opening reception: Wednesday, October 31, 5-7 pm
McColl Center for Art + Innovation Resident Artist Liz Miller creates elaborate chain patterns cut from industrial rolls of materials such as felt, vinyl, and leather. Their lacy silhouettes created from the profiles of firearms, killer bees, and poisonous plants, these patterns are both elegant and deadly. Splicing these silhouettes together into suspended, cantilevered chains, Miller creates sculptural interludes that are equal parts absurd, menacing, and poetic.
Working directly with Miller, students in the Mixed-Media/Print Media class will research, develop, collaborate, and execute original, site-specific mixed-media installations exploring concepts of past, present, and future.
About the CoA+A Gallery System
The mission of the College of Arts + Architecture gallery system is to create lively forums in which the curious encounter the work of global, regional, and local artists through diverse media and dynamic exchanges that are nourished by the intellectual and creative life of the university. Our programming will echo crossovers of the visual arts, architecture, music, theatre, and dance inherent to the College of Arts + Architecture at UNC Charlotte. We seek to provide a haven for experimentation, to invigorate the environments we occupy, and to amplify the means to engage art and design in our community.
Adam Justice, Director of Galleries
