Presenting Artists for October 2016:

Kevin Clancy

Kevin Clancy is an interdisciplinary artist who creates accumulative process-based installations, participatory experiences, and nomadic social spaces that provide momentary glimpses into utopic possibilities. He has exhibited work at Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh), Keleketla! Library (Johannesburg), VIVO Media Arts Centre (Vancouver), Flux Factory (New York), The Children's Museum (Pittsburgh), ILLUMINUS (Boston), and Mobius (Boston). He holds a BFA from the Studio for Interrelated Media at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. He has been awarded the Morton R. Godine Travel Fellowship, an Artist Opportunity Grant from the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council, and the Renna Arts Scholarship from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Scott Andrew

I am a multimedia artist, with interests that span many modes of inquiry, processes, and themes. In much of my solo work, collaborative works with Suzie Silver Co­Producing Trans­Q Television and Trans­Q Live, as well as various collaborations with Dani Lamorte, Harrison Apple, Mikey McParlane, Adam Atkinson, Jonathan Armistead, Stephanie Ross, and John Musser, I have explored topics of gender, sexuality, and post humanism.
The absurd encounters that are manifested in these works embrace the spectacle with an affinity for maximalism; over stimulating viewers through the excessive selection of materials, and media. Methods of assemblage that pull from the tradition of drag are integral to the creation of characters and environments within these videos, installations, and performances. Discarded thrift store kitsch finds an opulent new life through a reimagining of its usefulness and worth. These decadently rendered materials are set in motion to expose camp's attack of the present via the detritus of the past, and the ubiquitous nature of excess in society.
