Since opening on July 10th Tate Foley’s solo exhibition at RAC has enjoyed considerable success. A sort of postmodern, politicized Andy Warhol, Foley’s screen prints speak to a consumerism and selfishness that is ever present in our culture. From household items such as toothpaste and coca cola, to oil cans and oversized futuristic toy guns Foley expresses the way that objects of our society define it. This show is true to this moment in American history. If you have not come to see this show yet you have three days left to do so!
100% Stratification Guaranteed or Your Money Back received glowing praise in ArtFuse for its authenticity and honesty, a sentiment that visitors and collectors of the gallery agree with as at least one of each edition piece has sold (don’t worry there are still plenty left!)
If you have already seen the show, or are curious for further information check out the interview with Foley conducted by summer intern Madeleine Dahl.
Also on the walls at RAC right now, George Spencer, Teresa Marchetta, and Jacob Thomas
George Spencer makes gorgeous acrylics on found posters. Not only is the image of the boxer full of motion, immediately drawing focus, but the found medium makes it a conversation piece. Teresa Marchetta’s Plastic Print Series are full of bright colors and create abstract and expressive images through photographing found plastic bags. Thomas’ images of superheroes with commercial logos on their chests ideologically align with the atmosphere of the main exhibition.
Coming Up at RAC:
