Description

Reception: Thursday, May 4 from 6 to 8 p.m.

SCAD presents "Maginot," an exhibition by SCAD alumna Alex Gingrow (M.F.A., painting, 2007). The artist considers language her primary medium, painting both appropriated and generated text across several distinct bodies of work featured in the exhibition. Her meticulous text-based works explore personal history, the passage of time and privacy. Representing a daily record of one year, the "This Disposable Day Desk Calendar" series started in 2013 with the recording of one thought and one action each day. These entries are transcribed onto a painted reproduction of a kitschy daily calendar, offering viewers a glimpse into personal moments in Gingrow's life, whether they be upsetting, embarrassing, joyous or banal.
