University Art Gallery
Superbloom is a solo exhibition by NYC-based artist Eric LoPresti at the New Mexico State University Art Gallery opening on October 4, 2018. This exhibition examines the complicated effects the Cold War and nuclear testing have had on the Southwest American landscape and the global psyche. Comprised of oil paintings, large-format watercolors, digital works and a multi-channel video (a new medium for the artist), SUPERBLOOM will be accompanied by a series of performances and events.Sited a mere 97 miles from Trinity, location of the first atomic bomb, the exhibition outlines an expansive framework within which viewers can meditate on two increasingly relevant antipodes of human experience: the quest for aesthetic expression, and the threat of global apocalypse.
Exhibit: October 4 – January 5, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 4, 2018, 5:30 PM
