calendar icon27 Aug 2014
“Between Mary and Eve,” a series of photographic sculptural triptychs exploring the relationship between religion and daily life by Department of Art and Art History senior Brooke Choquette, of Upland, Nebraska, will be on display Sept. 1-6 in the MEDICI Gallery, located in Richards Hall on the University of Nebraska–Lincoln city campus.
A reception with the artist will be held on First Friday, Sept. 5 from 7-8 p.m. in the gallery, which is located on the first floor of Richards Hall at Stadium Drive and T sts. Admission to the gallery is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The self-portrait triptychs are based on traditional Christian iconography and are representative of the relation between Mary and Eve in the artist’s life. Choquette first made digital photographs, which she then transferred onto wood to imitate religious altarpieces.
Choquette received an Elgas Project Grant for the series, which helped make this exhibition at the MEDICI Gallery possible.
