OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, February 2nd 6-8pm
Holt Gallery presents an exhibition of new paintings and installations by Molly Alloy, each suspended within the cognitive dissonance of culturally constructed whiteness. This show bluntly — though often humorously — confronts Alloys’ own internalized white supremacy, and how it shapes the frameworks and codes of her thoughts and lived experience. The work pointedly resists the urge to explain, defend, or soothe the abrasive fact of its theme, preferring to dwell in the tension.
ABOUT ALLOY Molly Alloy was born and raised in St. Louis, and made her home in Portland, OR in 2008. She has a Bachelor of Science in Studio Art from Skidmore College in NY, and is currently an MFA candidate at the Pacific Northwest College of Art. More at www.mollyalloy.com
