Curated by Jenny Gerow, Assistant Curator

Interested in exploring the notions of insider, outsider and the other, artist Adrienne Elise Tarver created an installation that exploited our curiosity of what’s within barriers and questioned what is gained (and at the same time lost) once we’ve looked inside. She did this with both large scale video projections, light box installations, photographs, and hand-drawn wallpaper, exploring the life of a woman from an old photograph she found in a thrift store. Young, black, and female, wearing glasses and facing the camera, Tarver was enticed by this woman's anonymity, and built a story about her, starting with her home and finding the narrative as the pieces came together. 

Project Room exhibitions highlight solo projects by emerging artists whose work encompasses a rich range of themes and media.
