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 GrammaticasLauren KaelinElisa KresignerTorie LeighJennifer 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.

By @arcmagazine “Experimental nature generally characterizes Jeannette Ehlers’s work. Image manipulation is often included in the artist’s photographic and video based works. On these changeable terms meaning and identity are explored, in both a sophisticated and immediate way.

Jeannette Ehlers’ recent works all revolve around the Danish slave trade in the colonial era. The artist’s own ethnic background, with a Danish mother and a Father from Trinidad,W.I., adds extra strength to the works.Through digitally manipulated photographs and video installations, she puts The Transatlantic Slave Trade, blackness and black identity under the microscope.

In the video Black Magic at the White House (2009) Ehlers is performing a voudon dance in Marienborg, which has a strong connection to the Transatlantic Slave Trade. It was built as a summer residence for the Commander Olfert Fischer in 1744.Several other of the period’s trading men have owned and put their stamp on Marienborg, and today it still plays an important role in Denmark, in terms of its position as the official residence of the country’s prime minister.

Her latest video work Black Bullets (2012) was filmed on location in Haiti and is inspired by The Haitian Revolution. The work is a homage to the act of revolt.  #contemporaryart #metanoia #caribbeanart #graceexhibitionspace”
