Galveston Arts Center presents "LOW MAGIC" and "Visual Pathology" opening reception
Fort Worth-based artist Jesse Morgan Barnett’s exhibition "LOW MAGIC" follow’s the artist’s correspondence with Valery Spiridonov, the first confirmed head/body transplantation patient, and works through questions about conditionality, perseverance, and naturalistic interpretations of luck.
In the second floor 1878 and Brown Foundation Galleries, "Visual Pathology" presents a collaboration with GAC and the Department of Pathology at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) at Galveston. In collaboration with six pathologists from UTMB, artists Steve Fisher, Mark Greenwalt, Colleen Maynard, Sarah Sudhoff, and Kamilla Szczesna were given access to the remnants of UTMB’s historical pathological and surgical pathology collections as an inspirational starting point for the exhibition.
Following the opening reception, these exhibits will be on display until October 7.
