Gallery 263 is thrilled to announce LUCID, a solo exhibition by Shaina Gates. LUCID is part of Gallery 263’s Exhibition Proposal Series, a program in which shows are selected by a competitive jurying process. This exhibition reflects the artist’s interest in the transfer and translation of images across surfaces, systematized processes, and theories related to dimensionality and the organization of space. In LUCID, a body of lumen prints on both paper and film are on view. Lumen prints, or sun prints made on black and white photography paper, are a camera-less photographic process. The works in LUCID, which conjure a joy similar to what one may experience when looking through a kaleidoscope, map the physical experience of how the prints were systematically folded by the artist, materializing the medium’s memory as a visible record. In this way, the material becomes lucid.
On View: April 15–May 15, 2021
Gallery Hours: Wednesday–Friday, 4–7 PM; Saturday, 1–4 PM
