exhibition: now open; Isadora Stowe: illuminated
October 20, 2022 - March 12, 2023
1 Arts Festival Plaza
- El Paso Museum of Art - Dede Rogers Gallery
illuminated brings together paintings, silkscreens, floating Mylar, Plexiglas silhouettes, colored light, and a projected video wall with incorporated quadraphonic sound. Multi-media artist Isadora Stowe’s immersive art invites audiences to engage with how realities are constructed and how meanings are designated. Focusing on the construction of self and the illumination of narratives, Stowe explores the relationships between borders, real or imagined, and the reconstruction of memory. Through light, shadow, color, and sound, Stowe’s unique installation embraces the senses to create a visual journey. The interactive experience invites viewers to find themselves by creating their own connections, questions, and shared meaning.
Support for this exhibition is provided by the Mellon Foundation, the Texas Commission on the Arts, the El Paso Museum of Art Foundation, and the City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department.
