Jacqueline Surdell: Straight Laced
Sep 3-Oct 9 | Foundation Gallery
Reception Sep 19 | 4-6 pm
Jacqueline Surdell is an interdisciplinary artist and former collegiate athlete. Surdell’s work draws from the rigorous discipline and directed stamina she practiced in her own athletic career, providing a lens for translating and abstracting the contemporary body. Surdell’s large-scale installations draw attention to the tools and environments containing and displaying performances of power and skill, questioning the boundary between artist and athlete — challenging the internalized and gendered rules we use to give each meaning.
