Exhibit and artist's talk by Wilder Alison
Engaging with found visual media and language gleaned largely from authorless sources, Wilder Alison’s work elaborates how pairing texts and images can subtly subvert—rather than encourage—the production of discrete identifications and narrative coherence. Through painting, screen-printing, textiles, photography and music, Wilder frames contemporary questions about labor, madness, gender, and sexuality. This exhibit of her work includes wool paintings and a video. "Numerous boundaries at play here, where cuts are also sites of attachment: an articulation. Welcome to the alter-ego of the split subject." Wilder is a 2016 graduate of the Bard MFA in Painting program and a fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Wilder's exhibit is in Snyder Gallery from October 23 to December 1.
