About the event
Fine Arts Faculty Exhibition Self•ish: Doug Gast, Joe Hedges, and Io Palmer
ABOUT | The museum has a long-standing tradition of presenting work by department of Fine Arts faculty members. Previously, these exhibitions have alternated large group shows with a biennial exhibit showcasing a recently retired faculty member. This year the museum will introduce a new format in which select members of the faculty present current work in thematic-based exhibitions.
Self•ish features the work of Doug Gast (WSU Tri-Cities), Joe Hedges (WSU Pullman), and Io Palmer (WSU Pullman). Though varied in process and mediums, all three artists have assembled an exhibition reflecting on a central theme—the formation and depiction of personhood within our multifaceted and progressively digital era. Using his own self-image, Hedges’ work speaks to fragmented identities through online storage and distortion, whereas Gast’s project probes the margin of private and public image use across popular image-sharing platforms. Lastly, the work of Palmer takes a laborious view of a culture’s insatiable appetite for abundant images and adornment.
LOCATION | The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU is located in the Crimson Cube (on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium and the CUB) on the WSU Pullman campus. The hours of our six galleries are Tuesday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., closed Sunday and Monday. For more information please contact the museum at 509-335-1910.
