POLYCEPHALY

View Exhibition

AUGUST 7 – 28

ALICIA LISA BROWN, WILL GABALDON, LUCIA LOVE, BABETTE RITTENBERG, RHIAN PRITCHARD, SARAH SARCHIN

Sanitary Tortilla Factory is excited to present Polycephaly, a group show of painters and multimedia artists that features human heads in some form. From traditional portraits, to the wild, raucous distortions of surreal cartoon figures- Polycephaly, is the condition in which a creature, human or animal, has multiple heads. The work in the exhibition shares a superficial theme of figuration, while simultaneously being deeply divergent in thought and approach. In conjunction with the show, there will be a scheduled series of online artist conversations that aims to facilitate inter art community dialogue.  All of the presented artists are based in cities around the country and will discuss their work with a local Albuquerque based artist. The video talks will explore various themes, subject matter, and processes, as well as observations on the impact of the current historical climate on their local arts communities.  Albuquerque video participants include: Frank Blazquez, Jodie Herrera, Jessamyn Lovell, Earl McBride, Helen Atkins and Nancy Zastudil. Polycephaly is curated by Hannah Bluhm.
