This summer in MMoCA’s lobby and Icon, Thomsen will construct in the space of elsewhere, a site-responsive installation that plays with the way light and shadow interact with the museum’s soaring architectural features. Her thoughtful placement of large-scale photographic murals, mirrored objects, metallic netting, and iridescent substrates will simultaneously direct and scatter beams of light across the lobby walls, floors, and surfaces, delicately interrupting the visual plane of the building’s interior and transforming our encounters with light, space, time, and movement.

BEFORE AND AFTER...Just completed a one week residency at FLOATSINK in the Art Department of Florida State University working on experimental publications. Having the hands on time to experiment with the RISO machine was incredible. I am hooked on the riso for life. Thank you to the incredible team of students and staff at FSU Fine Arts for your energy and time! Sophia Marin, Kathleen Saunders, Renata Fulginiti, Colleen Itani, Christopher Christian, Clint Sleeper and the incredible John Mann- you guys were fantastic to work with!
Aperture has invited the artist-run super PAC, For Freedoms, to curate and implement an improvisational exhibition and series of dialogues that investigates the photographic collective as a model for responsive artistic production.
The collectives included in the exhibition are EverydayClimateChange, Invisible Borders, Kamoinge, Piece of Cake, Rawi(ya), and WRRQ.
Throughout the duration of the exhibition, Aperture and For Freedoms, along with the participating collectives, will host a series of activities to unite artists, photographers, activists, and the broader community.
