Gertrude Salon: Closing Reception and Walk Through

Peninsula Art Space would like to invite you to a closing reception and curatorial walkthrough of Vanessa Hodgkinson's solo exhibition, P R E I M A G E. 

The event will feature Pommery champagne and pastries from Baked. 

Vanessa Hodgkinson is a London-based artist interested in conceptual and structural frameworks that reinforce her process of communicating ideas through painting. The works brought together at in her first solo exhibition in New York investigate the space just before an image develops, be it in printing, Photoshop or filmmaking. 

Hodgkinson playfully links industry terminology with visual signs that mask the figurative and enable the viewer to conceptualize the subject through memory and narrative imagination. The works align into a constellation of events that mark our current condition of political distrust, cultural paranoia and the quasi-surveillance state with particular references to drone warfare, war imagery, photomontage, fantasy storytelling and cultural misrepresentations.

Independent curator, Julie Solovyeva, will lead a special tour and discussion of the exhibition within the context of hyper-media and fast-paced technological innovation.
