Author of My Current Condition
__________________________________________
Join me and view my installation, Author of My Current Condition

Denver, CO – Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU) is proud to present

On view at the Center for Visual Art (CVA), and part of The Walls are WHITE BFA thesis exhibition, this self-portrait of personal events is the dominant theme of my confessional art.

Originating from my childhood, Author of My Current Condition is a retrospective of trauma, betrayal, truth in memory, and identity. An installation of past personal experiences is interpreted with evidence of conflicting memories to be read and decoded. Employing archetypal symbols charged with sexuality and narrative, the relationship and language between my objects and colors reconstruct the past.

General Information and Hours

The CVA is located at 965 Santa Fe Drive, Denver, CO 80204

It is open to the public Tuesday – Friday 11am – 6pm, Saturday 12 – 5pm. During exhibitions, CVA is open until 8 pm on First and Third Fridays.

For more information call 303-294-5207 or visit CVA’s website at https://www.msudenver.edu/cva/exhibitions
