Power House Memphis: Presents...

Power House Memphis presents: Everywhere, Nowhere, Somewhere…
A Power House Director’s Choice Group Exhibition
July 3-August 10, 2009

Everywhere, Nowhere, Somewhere looks at the oddity of humanity with pieces that border on the bizarre, compulsive and the beautiful. Works question labels of race, gender and cultural identity, highlighting the concept of otherness and how it affects our perception of reality. The sense of wandering implied by Everywhere, Nowhere, Somewhere is embodied by installations that lie on the fringes of categories like sculpture and painting, but do not quite find a home within these classifications. Much of the work deals with the negotiation of identity in a world that is complex, mysterious and anything but black and white.The 2009 Power House Director's Choice Artists are: Keith O. Anderson (NYC), Dwayne Butcher (Memphis), Brendan Fernandes (NYC), Marie Irmgard (Denmark), Charles Huntley Nelson (Atlanta), Kambui Olujimi (NYC), Joel Parsons (Memphis), Jonathan and Mary Postal (Memphis), Jackson Dingo Ryan (Eugene, OR) and Tam Tran (Memphis).

Opening reception from 6-8pm July 3rd
Director's Choice talk about Everywhere, Nowhere, Somewhere on July 16th at 6:30pm
