Opening 1 February, 2019: “Surface Tension, Surface Tenses” dual exhibition with Daniel Everett.
The Anderson, VCU, Richmond, Virginia. Through March 1, 2019.

About the Exhibition: For “Surface Tension, Surface Tenses,” Daniel Everett and Leah Beeferman present works which react to a sense of contrasting forces: structure and wildness. Using the built environment (Everett) and natural landscapes (Beeferman) as points of departure, both artists make additive disruptions to their photographic images as a means for prolonging observation and creating new understandings. Through layering, reordering, and digital mark-making, the artists work toward their own states of “unresolve,” embracing flatness and complexity all at once.


Opening 18 May, 2019: Kanssaelo / Beings with. The Fiskars Village BiennaleFiskars, Finland.
Jenni Nurmenniemi, curator. 19 May–15 Sept 2019. About the exhibition.
