Still Summer features recent work by Debra Barrera and Kelly O’Connor, curated by Dr. Melissa Mednicov, Assistant Professor of Art History. The works in the exhibition evoke a sense of memory, both of one’s own past and a collective nostalgia—suggesting a shared past, perhaps a past that never existed. O’Connor’s work emphasizes the role which mass culture plays in making—or building—memory while Barrera’s work considers personal memory as it relates to her childhood experiences involving sports. Still Summer offers a range of works in video, installation, and collage; each medium and individual work reminding us of the ways our own past and memories are continual sources of myth making.
