Spatial Collage: Getting Wacky Wit It is an exercise in taking the collage format of assembling ephemera on paper – and transferring that practice to a larger-scale. “Spatial Collage” is an experiment rooted solely in self-expression and freedom, while simultaneously toying with ideas of formal exhibition and product placement.
Self-empowerment is a main focus of Julia Arredondos work, specifically in the realm of publications and zines. Aspiring to be more like cartoon characters who suffer trauma but never seem to carry emotional baggage, she believes in the power of constructing positive present and future actions by taking sometimes traumatic past experiences and letting those memories work for me. “I seek to empower myself and others in a way that let’s us confront oppressive experiences and turn them into badges of strength, humor, and grace.”
Spatial Collage: Getting Wacky Wit It will kick-off with a Gallery Talk with Julia Arredondo at 6:00 p.m. on April 1, followed by the Opening Reception.
Spatial Collage: Getting Wacky Wit It is one of three Residency Exhibitions, a series of solo exhibitions that feature the 2015 Spudnik Press Resident Artists and the new work they each produced through the Spudnik Press Residency Program.
