ART REVIEW: family matters
On one of the last days Northlight Gallery, located at the Arizona State University School of Art, had an exhibition up this month I decided to go visit one of their photography shows called “Family Matters” which was a revisited show. The concept of the exhibition was to gather similar work and similar ideas from various photographers and display them all in one show. The gallery had multiple rooms throughout, all which had work from different artists all separated by room. The first room had many photos on the wall of different familial situations such as group sport pictures, family dinners, activities you might do with your family, etc. Underneath all the photos in the first room was a brief one paragraph description of the photo and how the conceptual idea of family was tied in with the photograph.
In the other smaller rooms throughout the gallery there was various different work all very different from one another. One of the artists themes showed more so the relationships within family showing how different family values can be and how far boundaries can stretch within your own family. One photo that really stood out to me was a portrait of a mother and a daughter laying in a bed completely bare and hugging (artist: H Jennings Sheffield). This photographers work was from her series Tethered. I found her concept very intriguing and also made me feel more aware and open about other familial relationships.
The show not only had work from many photographers, there was also 2-D sculpture of four mannequins dressed with what seemed like hand made dresses made out of paper emphasizing the whole show in general. These mannequins were placed as you walked into the show greeting the viewers in a way, and the ideas of hand-made dresses went with the theme of family quite well. There was obviously a lot of creativity put into the exhibition with many different artists and photographers involved.
Overall I enjoyed the idea and concept of the show but the experience itself was not what I was expecting and somewhat dissatisfying. It seemed like the artwork was put up on the walls randomly with no effort to display the work for the viewer to enjoy. In one of the rooms the exhibition was knocked over obviously not doing its purpose and nobody cared to pick it up nor maintain the exhibition whatsoever. When I first walked in with multiple other people we were briefly greeted by a rude woman while she quickly turned her back and walked into a back room while her and other workers were making loud noise listening to music for the remainder of the time I was present. The artwork had potential to make a great impact on viewers but easily failed simplify because lack of maintenance of the exhibition.
