Non Place: Robert Aiosa and Jay Giroux

Robert Aiosa and Jay Giroux takeover Gallery221@HCC and Gallery3@HCC!

Gallery221@HCC is pleased to announce the opening of NON PLACE: Robert Aiosa and Jay Giroux, on view May 13– June 27, 2019.

Robert Aiosa and Jay Giroux examine the parts of the urban landscape that are often most forgettable. Walls displaying only the torn fragments of weathered advertising, architectural structures in transition and/or decay, concrete environments devoid of any sign of human life save for the occasional article of litter: all of these coalesce into a visual lexicon of “non place.” In an expansive exhibition take-over of both Gallery221@HCC and Gallery3@HCC, Aiosa and Giroux employ sculpture, painting, and installation to explore the structure, grit, and story of urban areas overlooked. Aiosa received his M.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015 and is now a Faculty Research Associate and Sculpture Fabricator at the University of South Florida’s Graphicstudio. Giroux is an artist, designer, and educator who received his M.F.A. from the University of Houston in 2011.

An opening reception will be held on Thursday, May 16 from 5:00-8:00pm with a panel discussion with both of the artists scheduled to begin at 6:00pm. The event will take place on the 2nd floor of the Learning Resources Center / Library building (DLRC), HCC Dale Mabry Campus. Food, libations, and music will be provided for free, courtesy of the gallery.

The event is free and open to the public; parking is also free on campus in any open lot.
