For the past twenty years, American artist Shannon Taggart (born 1975) has documented Spiritualist practices and communities in the United States, England, and Europe. The resulting body of work, Séance, examines the relationship of Spiritualism to human celebrity, its connections to art, science, and technology, and its intrinsic bond with the medium of photography. This exhibition presents forty-seven haunting images from the series, revealing the emotional, psychological, and physical dimensions of Spiritualism in the 21st century.
The Center for Innovation, Research and Creativity in the Arts (CIRCA) presents transdisciplinary artist Nicolás Dumit Estévez Raful Espejo Ovalles, who will present his category-defying work that treads an elusive route manifesting itself performatively or through experiences where the quotidian and art overlap. Ken Dewey Director of Franklin Furnace Archive Harley Spiller will lead a lively conversation with the artist.
