CUAC is pleased to announce a group exhibition entitled, The Second Lore, curated by Margherita Belaief of Peres Projects and Marta Fontolan of Galerie Neu both located in Berlin Germany.
The exhibition will feature the work of Jeremy Deller (United Kingdom), Aleksandra Domanovic (Slovenia), Patricia Esquivias (Spain), Marinella Senatore (Italy), Lucy Raven (United States), Anetta Mona & Lucia Tkacova (Czech Republic).
The Second Lore aims to explore how a group of contemporary artists deals with the historical past and its immediate aftermath. By engaging in storytelling as a medium, the group of artists selected utilize narrations to retell certain historical situations and events mediated by their own individual viewpoints. Through the exploration of their traditions, the folklorist aspect of their culture, the works presented in The Second Lore insert a personal rewriting of canonical events that have shaped their culture's history which in turn subtly destabilizes historical truth.
The Second Lore is composed of installation and video works. Film as a medium is a deliberate formal and conceptual choice. The video becomes the tool by which fiction and documentary are intertwined combining the public and private and reality and deception.
Opening Party
2nd and 2nd/Edison Quarter Art Walk Block Party
To celebrate the opening of The Second Lore CUAC is contributing to an Art Walk and Block Party with FICE, Copper Palate Press, Art Haus and Young Architects Forum of Utah. Live music by various local bands and DJs will be playing on two different stages around the 2nd and 2nd block in downtown Salt Lake City.
