Conner Contemporary Art is pleased to present concurrent solo exhibitions by Jeremy Kost, Joe Ovelman and Geoffrey Aldridge. Joe Ovelman (MFA '10) explores sexuality and the subversion of social norms with a series of new sculptures in his second solo exhibition with the gallery, "Coming Home". Works made of wood and mixed media resemble apparatuses used in past decades to provide anonymity during sexual encounters. Removing these forms from their original contexts and adjusting the relation of their features to human anatomy, Ovelman emphasizes the universality of these objects.
