Artist Lecture: Alicia Ross at Opalka Gallery

Tonight, Feb. 22 at 6:30 PM, catch Guest speaker Alicia Ross at Opalka Gallery in Albany. The artist is known for her exploration of the female identity using photography, fiber, video, installations and–most recently–large-scale embroidery work. Her manipulation and remediation of famous female representatives in “Phrenology Studies,” is described by the artist as a work that “creates a cyborg-esque representation, and comments on the public dissection of female roles by the media and society at large. The juxtaposition of such media-made celebrities blurs the distinction between praiseworthy figures and unworthy role models.”
