New York based artist, Rachel Wark, is taking over the the back area of the Holland Project Gallery space to create a rad new installation which will be on view from June 13-30!

Rachel’s exhibition, Define Divine, is an on-going project with both online and physical manifestations exploring the validity of sacred images and objects through the re-contextualization of hyper-capitalist imagery. Comprised of wallpaper installation, live single channel projection of Define-Divine.com as well as several sculptural elements, the installation mimics mass-produced American kitsch while offering new vessels of worship.

In the hallway space of the HP Gallery from June 13-30 we have work by local artist, Nicole Miller, in an exhibition titled, Simulacra. Nicole utilizes digital methods to create sculptural mixed media pieces that explore connections between her own physical human body, digital technologies and both their cultural contexts.
