The University of Wyoming Art Museum will feature “(re)Evolution: Enrique Gomez de Molina & Troy Abbott” during a free reception to celebrate the exhibitions for the fall semester Friday, Sept. 20, from 6-8 p.m.
“(re)Evolution: Enrique Gomez de Molina & Troy Abbott” presents a survey of artworks by Enrique Gomez de Molina and Troy Abbott from the last 15 years. The exhibition explores the process of creation and reveals the evolution of each artist’s own creative process. The rogue taxidermy of Gomez de Molina and digital/vintage combinations of Abbott use nontraditional media to invite audiences to think more profoundly about the ethics of human/animal relationships. The exhibition invites viewers to consider what life on Earth might look like under different circumstances -- the (re)evolution. The exhibition will be on view through Dec. 21.
“Trey Duvall: Do, Do, Do, Do, Do” presents an evolving site-specific sculpture, “Spool/Unspool,” and a rotating frieze of video performances. Duvall’s work concerns entropy, futility, humor, duration, stamina and material or physical exhaustion. His creative practice includes various forms of large-scale installation, video, performance and other sculptural and organizational mediums. The exhibition will be on view through Nov. 16.
The UW Visual Arts Department Faculty Exhibition showcases the creative work of UW visual arts department faculty members.
