Dear Friends,

I want to let you know about an outstanding exhibition about to open at the Transformer Station as part of the Cleveland Museum of Art's program. I wish I could be there and look forward to visiting the show and seeing many of you at some point later in the summer.

This exhibition is supported by the Cleveland Museum of Art, curated by Barbara Tannenbaum and accompanied by a 240 page monograph published by Yale University Press.

Film as object. Film as photographic installation. Film as film. Love and grief over the holiday weekend.

If you're in Cleveland come out and see a movie at the Transformer Station in Ohio City on May 23. It's 45 minutes and plays on a loop, come whenever.

TR Ericsson will be present to talk with you between 2-5.

About TR Ericsson's work Crackle & Drag:

TR Ericsson applies conceptual rigor and emotional directness towards the production of images and complex narratives riddled with simple truths. Using the archives of his family’s past to explore the healing powers of commemoration and memory, he grapples with these archival materials power to define the past, present and future, as they vanish slowly with time. Ericsson includes many photographs of his mother along with related pictures, documents, writings, film stills, and family artifacts dating back to the 1930s. His body of work “Crackle & Drag” is an inspired chronicle of several generations of a Midwestern American family, evoking universal themes of love and loss.

Works from this body have been acquired by notable private and public collections including those of the Whitney, MoMa, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
