Ms. Kianga turned 4 today!
Thanks for the submission @
’Isaiah’ is a contemporary take on scripture. The poster addresses issues surrounding our advanced state of capitalism by using an astoundingly relevant verse from Isaiah’s prophecies of judgment. It frames consumerism as our new religion by using familiar advertising aesthetics. The pop of the neon and expressive type is, however, a facade that only partly covers up capitalism’s crumbling promise of freedom and welfare. Itself a product on the market, ’Isaiah,’ questions our tethered relationship to cycles of consumption.
Happy Belated Birthday, Audrey Hepburn!

OPENING RECEPTION: Fri, Mar. 28, 2014 from 7-9pm
EXHIBITION DATES: March 28 - April 13, 2014
Fowler Project Space is pleased to present Who’s Taylor Swift Anyway?, a group exhibition curated by Elizabeth Grammaticas. This exhibition seeks to explore our relationship to celebrity through embodiments of the pop-fictional character, Taylor Swift. New York Magazine recently named Swift the world’s biggest pop star with her 7 Grammy awards, record breaking music sales, and numerous advertising endorsements and branded products. How has this inescapable singer transformed our cultural landscape, and how might our relatively recent 24/7 obsession with all things celebrity affect how we relate to each other in “the real world”?
Who’s Taylor Swift Anyway? combines painting, video, installation, and performance by 6 talented artists: Elizabeth Grammaticas, Lauren Kaelin, Elisa Kresigner, Torie Leigh, Jennifer McDermott, and Chris Tyler. Each artist grapples in their own way with our relationship to pop culture whether it be by inhabiting the character of Taylor Swift in performance, by commenting on, creating, and disseminating memes, or by testing the boundaries of Copyright Laws and how they relate to artistic expression.
Please join us for the opening reception of Who’s Taylor Swift Anyway? on Friday, March 28th from 7-9pm. The opening will include live performances throughout the evening. The exhibition will be on view from Mar. 28th to Apr. 13th, 2014. Who’s Taylor Swift Anyway? can also be viewed during our open gallery hours on Saturdays from 12-5pm and by making an appointment.
