   Clough-Hanson Gallery: New Video Work by Local Artist Christopher Miner

   Date : Friday, 17 January 2014       From : 6:00pm   To : 8:00pm
   Category : Arts       Location : Clough-Hanson Gallery


   Event Description :

Rhodes' Clough-Hanson Gallery will present an exhibition of new video work, "The Gospel According to a Young American," by local artist Christopher Miner that runs through Feb. 8.

Miner's videos are deeply personal, eminently relatable, and at times, uncomfortable. With a keen eye for the revelatory moments that hide in the mundane, Miner coaxes gestures, songs, stories, and landscapes into tautly constructed meditations. For "The Gospel According to a Young American," Miner has selected a range of videos that span his career thus far, allowing the viewer to trace his development in dealing with a set of common themes—life and death, relationships, and faith prominent among them.

Miner has an M.F.A. from Yale University School of Art and a B.A. from the University of Tennessee. His work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New Museum in New York, and at Tate Britain in London, among other institutions.

Free and open to the public, the reception for the exhibition will be held on Friday, Jan. 17, 6-8 p.m. The artist also will give a free lecture on his work Thursday, Jan. 16, at 6:30 p.m. in Blount Auditorium on campus.
