Genevieve Gaignard at The Cabin LA (curated by Danny First)
By Appointment Only
April 18, 2015
THE CABIN LA and DIANE ROSENSTEIN are pleased to announce GENEVIEVE GAIGNARD: A GOLDEN STATE OF MIND, a solo installation of photographs, collage and sculpture at THE CABIN LA, opening Friday, May 1st, 2015.
Genevieve Gaignard will present a site-specific installation that transforms all four walls of The Cabin’s gallery into an autobiographical narrative. As a mixed-race artist (who recently received her MFA from Yale), Gaignard creates numerous alter-egos to explore the politics of gender, identity and contemporary culture. For this installation, she expands her practice of photographic self-portraits, sculptural shoes, and collages to dramatize the contrast between her new life in Los Angeles with her nostalgia for her small New England hometown.
Geneveive Gaignard (USA, b. 1981) received her BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston (2007) and an MFA in Photography from the Yale University School of Art (2014). She lives and works in Los Angeles.
The Cabin is an alternative exhibition space that is open by appointment only. Located in Hollywood (near Highland & Melrose Ave), The Cabin is curated by Danny First.
