November First Friday


Join us, Friday November 4 at 5PM for the opening reception for Guts Coming and Going, new work by Jessica Ann.

Jessica Ann is a visiting lecturer in sculpture and 4D at the University of Tennessee. She received her MFA from The Ohio State University, Columbus in 2016.

An exhibition of new and recent works by artist Jessica Ann entitled; Guts Coming and Going. Featuring video, sculpture, and interactive installation, the exhibition explores the material potential at the edge of the world wide web. Composed of many parts, each component is networked together by Ann’s desire to meet what she calls the “aggregate monster.” An entity lurking and learning amidst the ever cooled data banks of your external and eternal memory. Data siphoned daily among a trillion other self published transmissions, happening across facebook, text messages, phone calls, emails, twitter, cameras, and networked refrigerators. What fabulation might emerge among all this noise is presented here as objects and subjects oozing off the grid and into mixed reality

Guts Coming and Going will be on display at the UT Downtown Gallery from November 4 – 23. The reception is Friday, November 4 from 5-9PM at the UT Downtown Gallery. This event is free and open to the public.
