In this dual interview by Hannah Einhorn w/ curator Brooke Hoffert and Emily April Allen, photography provides a snapshot of a community finding each other.
From conversation abt physical spaces to physical bodies, fluid discussion abt dynamic fluidity and time-frozen portraiture, the conversation abt queer art in the south continues as much on the website as in person.
Come together and enjoy each other in a “collaborative community experience.”
Elise Drake’s Utterverse, shown at Julia Martin Gallery in Nashville, Tennessee, consists of twenty-four pieces including sculptures and mixed-media installations. Each piece varies in size and most are constructed from enamel, resin, and gypsum cement. Drake started creating these pieces during the pandemic two years ago and it is her first solo exhibition at the gallery.
Currently based in Nashville, Drake is a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) with a BFA in sculpture with a concentration in sustainability and social practice. She is the co-founder of JAWBRKR which designs and builds sculpture and interactive experiences.
Kirby Miles’s upcoming exhibition Gingerly at FEMME gallery in Nashville, Tennessee opens on December 10th. Brooke Hoffert asked Miles some questions about their practice, queerness, and their inspirations.
I recently had the opportunity to participate in a remote residency with @holesinthewallcollective . Thank you so much for the opportunity and space to discuss my plans for @femmeartgallery and for helping me organize my thoughts!
Looking forward to putting my plan in action in 2023!
