  • Luke Gilford: Portraits of the Queer Frontier

    On View through December 23, 2022

    Luke Gilford’s (American, b. 1986) photographs share an intimate glimpse into the community of the queer rodeo circuit. Born to a mainstream rodeo champion, the images presented convey Gilford’s self-proclaimed “electric charge of belonging” when he discovered the International Gay Rodeo Association as an adult in 2016. The iconic sporting event of the American West calls to mind strength, independence, rugged determination, and grit.

  • Rec Lobe TV

    On View Through December 23, 2022

    The group of artists and programmers known collectively as NonCoreProjector have been employing artificial intelligence (AI) in conceptual art installations for the last five years. This latest site-specific iteration takes the local Laramie police radio as the starting point for a journey that invites the viewer deep into the “mind” of the algorithm-centric inter-web, the result of which is so far removed from the original text we might forget how we got there; mirroring our everyday interactions with the internet and social media.

  • Michiko Itatani: Infinite Hope/High-Point Contact

    On view through April 1, 2023

    Enigmatic and breathtaking, Michiko Itatani’s large-scale paintings draw the viewer in with gravitational pull. This new exhibition showcase works from two of her series: High-Point Contact and Infinite Hope. The earlier of the two, High-Point Contact is comprised of paintings created in the 1990s channeling Itatani’s questions over the place of human existence within the larger universe.
