ICA Baltimore @ Gallery CA
440 E Oliver St
Baltimore, MD 21202

May 29 - June 14, 2015

Friday, May 29, 7 - 10 p.m.

ICA Baltimore presents Angela Conant: Deuteranope, a multi-media exhibition of painting, projection, sculpture, and installation. Works will be arranged according to their meaning in relationship to dark and light, inner and outer, consciousness and unconsciousness.
Projection in an interior, dark gallery-within-gallery will serve as a false window to the outside/light space, and will display narrative that fictionalizes the objects outside. Works on the inside of the dark space will be balanced on the outside by countering or opposing objects.

The Deuteranope painting diptych series are each comprised of one painting made in full-color, and a second painting which is formally identical but rendered only in colors visible to people with red-green color blindness.Other works are props for a fictional public access television program which abstractly and sardonically explores the decline of objectivity in popular news media. Contemporary television news is parodied through transparent application of humble materials.
