MoP – Situation Report
HEATHER SHULTE, ELIZABETH MORISETTE, NOLAN SEPTER, LYNN CAZABON, ERIN DVORAK
Situation Report presents a capsule of artists’ responses to three concerns facing us as we look back on recent events. The state of our environment and our relationship to it, viewed through large-format land studies by Erin Dvorak, images from Boulder County Rangers documenting the CalWood fire, and Lynn Cazabon’s photograms on expired photographic vellum, alongside documentation of protests for social justice in Denver by Armando Geneyro and Nolan Septer. Heather Schulte’s titular stitched ribbon of Covid-19 case counts winds through the space, and along with Elizabeth Morisette’s sculptural treatment of mask-making remnants, bring a structure and tactility to the process of using art as a means to record the pas- sage of time.
In a packed exhibit reflecting the push and pull of 2020’s news cycles, we can use the gallery space to view each work in relationship to the others, evaluating and informing our responses.
