Damon Reaves and Anastasia m w (both MFA '08) in New Members Exhibition at Nexus, Opening Thursday, November 12, 6 - 9pm

Damon Reaves and Anastasia m w (both MFA '08) are proud new members of NEXUS Foundation for Today's Art and will be included in the new members exhibition opening Thursday, November 12. The other new members are Janell Olah and Kathryn TeBordo. This new batch of artists, practioners from across the creative spectrum, expands the boundaries of experimental art and challenges easy categorizations with work in installation, animation, performance, dance and dialog.

Damon Reaves is a multidisciplinary artist exploring issues of identity and social interaction. His work converts the abstract concept of identity into a physical form (most often liquid) that is applied, worn, and dripped off. Drawing on a background in theatre, his pieces explore that ways in which we “perform” who we are.

Anastasia m w
's works explore different moments in life, focusing on individual vs. common, partiality vs. unity.
