Event Detail Information
The UIS Visual Arts Gallery presents SUP?, a series of photographs by emerging New York-based artist Sean Fader. SUP? offers photographic portraits that result from an extensive 365 day social project and Ã¢ÂÂlived performanceÃ¢ÂÂ in which the artist produced photographs with men that he met through online companionship websites. Fader pushes photography beyond its potential for making images and objects, and treats the discipline as a performative act of establishing relations. This exhibition will explore how we Ã¢ÂÂimageÃ¢ÂÂ ourselves in the projections of our supposed identity that we create for the consumption of others, as well as how these projections break down when we engage with others on a deeper, more substantiated level.
