NEW EXHIBITIONS: Olivia Parker's Vanishing in Plain Sight and Contemporary Performance

Two new exhibitions just opened at FMoPA on April 19 until August 31, 2019!

Vanishing in Plain Sight explores the artists experience with her husband’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease. Through photography, Parker has produced a surreal and emotional catalogue of objects related to her husband’s diagnosis. Her use of dream-like photo manipulation places an interesting twist on the larger historical tradition of still life photography which she is working in. There will be an opening celebration held on Friday, April 26 from 5:00-7:00 PM. Parker will be holding a lecture to discuss her work in the exhibition. Admission to this event will be donation-based, and light refreshments will be available.

Contemporary Performance, curated by Kalup Linzy, explores gender, sexuality, class, race, and social identities, and will feature lens based works that convey, elude to, or concern itself with ideas encompassing performance and role playing. Photographers featured in the exhibition include

  • Ebtisam Abdulaziz,

  • Sean Fader,
  • Becky Flanders,
