Artist Statement

Delirium is a state of acute temporary confusion making it difficult to think, remember, sleep, pay attention, and express oneself verbally. Delirium may last a few hours, as long as several weeks, or in some cases, several months. According to medical diagnosis, delirium is usually caused by alcohol withdrawal, after major surgery, or as a by product of dementia. In the case of reflecting on our current state of the division of society, resurgence of racism and the Presidential Administration of the United States, delirium due to dismay may last for the next two to six years or longer. Depending on the actual cause of the delirium, treatment may include but is not limited to elimination of usage of specific media outlets who provide the distribution of subversive and counterproductive information. Dealing with the daily dismay of social media timelines that have lead to a wide variety of fractured relationships, friendships, and actual political progress, Delirium allows participants to visually express their anxiety through performance photography and collage. Do not worry, full recovery from delirium is possible with the appropriate treatment. It can take up to a few weeks for you to think, speak, and feel physically like yourself. One might have side effects from social media withdrawal methods used to treat this condition.

Settlers
Feb
28
to Mar 22

Settlers

  • 1460 Leyden St, Denver, CO 80220 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Dates:                          February 28 – March 22, 2019

Reception:                   Thursday, March 28, 2019. 5-8 pm

Gallery Talk:               tbd

 

Using photographic media as a foundation for their work, the seven artists in Settlers convey, figuratively and abstractly, the colonization of the American southwest. Whatever their motive and means—most came voluntarily, others were forced or coerced—the occupation of indigenous land is something that continues with every wave of Colorado “native” and newcomer.

 Collectively, the images in the show represent settlers from the late-19th century to the present decade. Looked at from a Native American perspective, these people might be thought of as alien invaders. Settlers is not a judgment of this, but it is a reminder that for every “new” territory there is an old, stolen one.

 The show's deliberate ambiguity is intended to kindle subjective associations and tangential connections. Settlers takes place during the 2019 Denver Month of Photography and works have been selected to align with the range of art-making conducted at Art Gym, most especially print-making. All the artists are from the Denver metro region; their works span more than 60-years of artmaking, 1950-2015.

 

Rupert Jenkins, Guest curator.

Now That I Have Your (un)divided Attention! | RedLine Denver

Now That I Have Your (un)divided Attention!
Annual Resident Artist Exhibition
January 25 - February 23, 2019
Curated by Nicole M. Crawford, University of Wyoming Art Museum
Reception: January 25, 2019, 6 - 9 PM
Resident Artist Studio Tour: February 15, 6 - 8 PM 

Participating Resident Artists: Tya Alisa Anthony, Sarah Bowling, Mackenzie Browning, Colby Deal, Trey Duvall, Lares Feliciano, Anthony Garcia Sr., Caleb Hahne, Clay Hawkley, Juntae TeeJay Hwang, Marsha Mack, Tony Ortega (Resource Artist), Charles Parson (Resource Artist), Eileen Roscina Richardson, Kate Speer, Michael Sperandeo, Kenzie Sitterud, Carley Warren (Resource Artist)

Participating Alumni: Ashley Frazier, Megan Gafford, Esther Hernandez, Andrew Huffman, Stephanie Kantor, John Lake, Sammy Lee, Ella Maria Ray, Becky Wareing Steele, Mario Zoots

Exploring the notion division through identity, culture, space, and time, each artist presents their distinctive and personal vision using a wide variety of materials and techniques, which in themselves become part of the division.

Now That I Have Your (un) divided Attention launches the 2019 theme of D | Vision, a series of exhibitions that will explore the relationship between social, cultural or political division and artistic vision. Throughout the year, RedLine's exhibits, special events, and programs will seek to investigate the ways in which division opens space for new creation and perspectives or how culture makes vision out of division. 


RedLine would like to thank the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation, Colorado Creative Industries, Denver Arts & Venues, Lynda M. Goldstein Foundation, Hemera Foundation, The David & Laura Merage Foundation, The Louise Merage Foundation, The Olson-Vander Heyden Foundation, RBC Foundation, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and our supporters and members for making this program year possible.

As tastemakers, trailblazers, and trendsetters in the arts, Leon has enjoyed an impressive amount of success as one of the most celebrated galleries within the contemporary arts scene in Denver. As we move forward, we envision a new model for the art gallery, one that will allow us to continue to benefit the artists we present as well as the community that we serve. As we skyrocket to even greater heights, we wanted to take a moment to look back at some of the artists we have worked with over the years and celebrate their remarkable work. After all, Leon is what it is today because of our artists and because of our community. Join us on Saturday, August 25th from 2pm - 11pm as we celebrate with new work and old favorites, from our family of artists.

Segregated Influences

Segregated Influences

COMPLEXION, explores the historical concept of colorism in the African-American/Black Diaspora. The definition of COLORISMDiscrimination based on skin color. Colorism is a form of prejudice or discrimination in which people are treated differently based on the social meanings attached to skin color."  Contemporary to the “paper bag test,” COMPLEXION focuses on the intersections of Black culture, systemic racism, and the ideal visual representation of Black Bodies presented by the media. 

 The first iteration of Colorism recently exhibited at The Dairy Art Center, Boulder CO, derives specifically from the 1950s, a time where it was perceived the American Dream was finally introduced to people of color BUT people of color were absolutely misrepresented by the imagery the magazine produced. Unlike today’s Jet Magazine filled with Celebrities of darker skin tones, fairer skinned women of color infused with European inspired hairstyles were deemed most attractive, desirable and complex socially.

ONE IN EIGHT

It is estimated that one in eight women born today will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in life. Through census research in 2013, approximately 160,593,450 women live in the United States; twenty million or one in eight of those women are destined for breast cancer. Breast cancer does not discriminate nor is it limited to one country. It is a global disease that affects both men and women; although the percentage of men who die from breast cancer is much smaller. A rare occurrence, less than one percent of all breast cancer cases develop in men and only one in a thousand men will ever be diagnosed with breast cancer. And so this exhibition focuses on the one in eight women who will be affected by this terrible disease.
