Don't Touch

Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday, 12-5 pm
August 12 - 23, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday, August 14th, 6-9 pm
The Red Head Gallery is pleased to present Don't Touch, an exhibition by guest artist Marianne Burlew.
Don’t Touch is a series of collaborations between Marianne Burlew and twelve other artists whose work inspires a physical response. Each artist has contributed one or more pieces to be encapsulated in air and plastic by Burlew, with the intent of taking into consideration the affect of denied or limited interaction with each artwork.
By allotting each art piece it’s own plastic environment, viewers will only be allowed a specific distance from each work. By enforcing this distance, the tension between both the private space and emotional intimacy each work demands is brought into focus. This speaks to a collective frustration with the gallery space as  one that alienates the physical desires of the viewer and ultimately rejects the body as a valid method of cognition.
