Lightness
Curated by Amanda Manitach + Serrah Russell
A one-night exhibit as part of City Arts Festival's visual art program at Fred Wildlife Refuge

Lightness features local artists working (at least for one night) in digital video, analog projection, light installation and other illuminating mediums. The term lightness connotes a philosophical weightlessness and mobility while also alluding to the physical ethereality of soundless video and illumination not intended to serve a strictly functional purpose. In Lightness both the compelling glow and the obscuring glare of light media are explored within the bounds of intimate and public space.

Artists: Justine Ashbee, Gretchen Bennett, Zack Bent, Saskia Delores, Francesca Lohmann, Jess Marie, Jennifer Zwick, Rodrigo Valenzuela & Susie Lee
