Cade Tompkins Projects invites you to attend an artist talk by Allison Bianco in conjunction with her exhibition A Curious Tide.
Allison Bianco’s work explores the strange way nostalgia subtly rewrites memory so that recollections of the past become only partly true. Referencing Rhode Island iconography in many of the pieces, Bianco expresses a personal connection to her home state and its industrial, maritime, and coastal heritages. To add both humor and drama to these narrative prints, impending storms threaten fragile, unaware characters in their colorful scenes.
Allison Bianco received her MFA in Printmaking (2010) from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and her BA in Studio Art (2001) from Mount Holyoke College, MA. Her work is in the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, (PA); RISD Museum (RI); Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts (HI); and truth box inc., (RI) among others.
Allison Bianco, A Curious Tide is on view at Cade Tompkins Projects through July 31, 2015.
