Gina Siepel’s diverse works explore the relationship between process, performance, and the construction of identity, connecting disparate American ideologies, from Thoreauvian ethics to Queer theory to the “self-reliance” championed by the political Right. These investigations draw on the work of such iconic 19th- and early 20th-century American thinkers as Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, John James Audubon, Winslow Homer, and Emma Goldman. Siepel integrates her conceptual inquiry with a deep engagement in craftsmanship and a love of materials. Opening reception at 6:30 p.m. on April 1.
