Friday, October 19th, UNC’s magazine Endeavors ran a feature about “The Lens of the Emerging Artist.” Marc Derewicz’s article focused on the three UNC student shows that Opened at FRANK, Hanes Art Center, and 143A University Square on October 12th. UNC MFA’s Ali Halperin’s “Border Glitches” and FRANK’s UNC undergraduate intern Kaitlin Knapp’s “The American Landscape”
Friday, October 12th at 6pm, FRANK hosted a reception for the Opening of Ali Halperin’s show, “Border Glitches.” At 6:30pm, Ali Halperin led a discussion on both her works and that of the other featured artist, Michael Lauch. Halperin’s exhibition theme is “Border Glitches,” exploring the blurred line between our digital lives and our corporeality, perpetuated by recent technology.
Halperin’s works are layered images of hoarders superimposed over their hoarded goods. Through photography, she aims to show the muddied distinction between the two separate worlds.
After her speech, Ali Halperin encouraged the visitors to attend the Opening of her Undergraduate students’ show “A Sense” at the Allcott Gallery of Hanes Art Center. This show explores the five senses through digital photography. Featured artist Deigo Camposeco gave a short speech introducing the theme and the artists.
