Ryan Carrington and Lynn Dau investigate notions of traditional gender roles through artistic labor, humor, and surreal presentations in Embark's second annual spotlight exhibition. Taking recognizable and arguably mundane objects and creating spectacles, Carrington and Dau tackle the promises and realities of the “American Dream” as it pertains to idealized family life and economic disparity.

Fieldnotes for Useful Light: tamara suarez porras

06/15/18-07/14/18

OPENING: Saturday, June 16TH, 5-8PM, 2018.

What began as an investigation into photometry (the science of the measurement of light, in terms of its perceived brightness to the human eye) evolves towards something less tangible - a meditation on light as a signifier for time and space. In porras’ work, the light in the Prelinger Library becomes a metaphor for discovery. Like the revelations of research, the secret shadows of the Library unfolded sporadically, organically, and with serendipity, and became for the artist as fruitful for artistic consideration as the texts themselves.
