charm in the charm city
Right now, Pamela has works on paper and an installation featuring large wall drawings, video, and sound on the view at the AAC in FALL SOLOS 2009. (The show is up through November 7--an odd coincidence.) Pamela's work follows the dreamlike nonlinear narrative of her alter ego, Asme, as she ventures through a fantastic Jules Verne-esque underworld.
Torkwase was featured at the AAC last summer in She's So Articulate; she installed a mural made from upcycled materials--earring cards, rhinestone sweatshirt and jacket appliques, and sensors and solar panels from outdoor lighting. With these types of unusual consumer cast-offs, Torkwase typically creates elaborate afrofuturist scenarios.
There will be a performance by both artists at the Alliance on December 3. More info here.
