July. 30-Sept. 13: Seven Points (part two)
The Embassy of Australia presents Seven Points (part two) through September 13. The exhibit showcases a diversity of ideas by four artists, including Tim Silver, who has two works in the exhibit: a photographic series documenting the disintegration of a full-body sculpture, and an installation of four burls, bulbous growths that grow on trees, cast out of black-pigmented polyurethane. “To me, I kind of see them as sites of trauma.” He says he’s interested in the idea of transformation. “The way things progress over time, and the sites that exemplify those things.”
