Exhibition runs May 1—July 14, 2018
Opening May 17, 2018 from 6-8pm.
This exhibition is part of the 2018 Medalta International Artists in Residence program.
Lauren Balderama’s exhibition, Wouldn’t It be Nice If We Felt The Same, is inspired by the poems, lyrics, patterns, and memories of their life. Lauren’s drawings come to life as physical objects, fun and playful explorations of their experience like pages torn from a journal.
Tic-Tac-Toe played in childhood is here in a new form asking the question, are you ready to play? And one cannot help but be reminded of Snakes and Ladders when viewing Lauren’s wall installation. Starting at one point we are led up, across, down, and through a series of markers that alternate between lost and found.
