Solo Exhibition "Healer" @ {Poem88}


From the press release:

Healer, Brian Hitselberger's second exhibition at Poem 88, is composed entirely of works on paper, utilizing ink drawing, various print techniques, digital print and collage to expand upon many of the themes explored in his 2017 installation, Counterspell. Based on a little-known 2010 drag performance by Drag Race-alum Detox Icunt, the prints and drawings in this exhibition reimagine the gestures and movements of drag as occasions for abstraction and conjuring. A drawing installation (also titled Healer) pairs manipulated video stills with large ink drawings in order to shift between figure and movement, and dancer and dance. In this work, Hitselberger imagines a queer space of power made by and through the body, and exploring linkages between queer performance and shamanistic trance traditions.

Opening May 18th in Atlanta, Georgia. I hope to see you there!

Solo Exhibition at Montgomory College


My 2017 installation Counterspell, along with new works on paper and print, is on view in the Open Gallery at Montgomory College in Takoma Park, Maryland. This show kicks off the gallery's new Soapbox series, in which artists use the space to address or speak on political issues or represent marginalized communities. I'm thrilled to be the first artist on the bill! 

An opening reception for the show is scheduled for October 25th - sadly I'll be unable to attend. However, I'll be returning to campus to meet with students and lecture on my work Monday, November 12, from 3-4pm. If you're in the area, I'd love to see you there!
