moxie DaDA gallery will celebrate its 4th ANNIVERSARY this month. As always, we have a special exhibit to mark the occasion. Guest curator and Chatham University senior Kari Garber has been handed the reigns this month as part of her tutorial project examining the exhibition of non-Western imagery in Western society. Kari has selected Prajna Paramita Parasher and her works of 2D digital multimedia.

The opening reception will be held this Saturday, October 4, 2008 from 6-9:00pm and is free and open to the public. The exhibit runs through Saturday October 25, 2008.

"...beyond stimulating aesthetics, Parasher’s work in 2-D digital multimedia reveals intriguing complexities. Acting as curator on this project presents a unique learning opportunity to explore exhibition theory and practice on a more intimate level, while also serving as a foundation for deeper research into issues facing an ever-expanding global art community. From historical appropriation to the modern day Diaspora, this project seeks to examine the challenges of exhibiting cultural content outside the realms of familiar understanding. A Beholding will serve as the embodiment of research dealing with the exhibition of Non-Western themes and motifs in American society." -guest curator Kari Garber
