Faculty Member Faith Wilding Retrospective

If you are in the Houston area check out VCFA faculty member, Faith Wilding’s, retrospective “Fearful Symmetries” at University of Houston Clear Lake Art Gallery.

Opening Reception: Thursday, Sept. 1, 6-8 p.m.

Exhibition On View: Sept. 2 – Dec. 8, 2016

The first retrospective for this highly influential feminist artist features a selection of works from Wilding’s studio practice spanning the past forty years. The nationally touring exhibition highlights a range of works on paper – drawings, watercolors, collage and paintings – exhibited together for the first time.

Taking up key, allegorical imagery in Wilding’s work, Fearful Symmetries focuses on themes of “becoming,” both the transformative event itself and the threshold to transfiguration. Imagery of leaves, chrysalides and hybrid beings fill Wilding’s work. Videos of her two prominent performances, “Waiting,” 1974, and “Wait-With,” 2007,

also explore such liminal circumstances. The tour’s fourth stop marks Wilding’s first solo exhibition in a Texas visual arts space. 

Wilding immigrated to the United States in 1961 from Paraguay. In the early 1970s she was a key figure in the formation of the first Feminist Art Program in Fresno and at the California Institute of the Arts, where she also received her MFA.

Be the first to see the works on view and meet the artist at the opening reception on Thursday, Sept. 1, 6-8 p.m. At 7 p.m., Wilding will join exhibition curator Shannon Stratton to discuss her artistic process. This program is located in the UHCL Art Gallery and free parking will be available in the Visitor Lot or Student Lot D. Complimentary refreshments including craft beer from Saint Arnold Brewing Company will be served.

My work resides at the intersection of biotechnology and art as I investigate the body and its environment, with a focus at the molecular level. I am concerned with how we humans – as well as the organisms around us – can be manipulated and controlled at the cellular level without our full knowledge and perhaps changed beyond repair.

By relying upon information that is often diluted and diminished through mass media, our view of complicated scientific information is at best simplistic. The complex nature of science leaves us in a grey area of not having complete information about our world. Nevertheless, while we remain uninformed, amazing scientific advances take place. Perhaps some of these advances wouldn’t happen if we were truly informed? Or perhaps they might happen in ways that could be more productive or responsible?

Many artists influence and provide direction to my research and art: subRosa, Critical Art Ensemble, Anab Jain, and VCFA faculty Faith Wilding. Museum collections, medical imagery,  historical writing as well as current writing from Richard Lewontin, Donna Haraway, and Evelyn Fox Keller provide perspective into scientific endeavors. I also review scientific research and collate articles to create notebooks (Lab Books) to track my research. As I do so, I am reminded that we aren’t so far removed from the eugenic practices of the past, as we proceed to categorize, and alter ourselves and our surroundings at a microscopic level. I am also aware of the difficulty of using art to critique and inform about science and medicine. With this in mind, I try to balance scientific intrigue with various artistic techniques to engage, attract, repel and enlighten.
