Please join us for the reception of latchkey kids, a Curatorial Proposal Series exhibition featuring a new series of mixed media works by Stephanie Todhunter. Twenty plaster-encased, hand-colored, 70s-era Dawn doll figurines form the backbone of the show. Macro-photographic portraits capture these frozen girls, their faces then printed on canvas and glass and buried underneath layers of metal leaf, spray paint, paper and wax. Some of the girls are shiny and brittle, others are bleached and torn. With these girls in latchkey kids, Todhunter gives voice to “generation x”; described as one of the least parented, least nurtured generations in recent U.S. History.
latchkey kids will be on view August 4–27, 2016.
