Closing Reception: Liquid Gold-Black Gold at ATA Window Gallery

Friday, June 29, 2012, 5:00 pm

Please join us for the closing reception of Kate Hoffman’s

Liquid Gold-Black Gold, the Golden Age of Whaling

5 – 7 pm, Friday June 29.

This month at the ATA window gallery is a segment from Kate Hoffman’s project “Liquid Gold-Black Gold, the Golden Age of Whaling”. Reflected in the project “Liquid Gold-Black Gold” are the whale’s migration paths preceding the 1850’s, the whalers that pursued them, and the system of escape used by slaves now known as the Underground Railroad. These three systems of movement are at times asynchronous, and at other times they become entwined and directly engaged. Through the use of found imagery, documents from the abolitionist movement and narratives of escape from slavery, the various intersections are expressed in an installation composed of a large scale drawing and sculpted objects.
