Art Talk with Frank Rodick and Katherine Ware

Free and open to the public.

“Curator Katherine Ware and photographer Frank Rodick will discuss his current exhibition Selections from the exhibition Labyrinth of Desire.

The MAC is proud to exhibit selections from Labyrinth of Desire, an exhibition of photographs at the Deborah Colton Gallery, Houston in 2010 by Canadian artist Frank Rodick, curated by Katherine Ware. Labyrinth of Desire consists of a series of photographs created from 1991 to the present. Known for creating powerful, evocative, and sometimes controversial pictures, Rodick alters images into sequenced compositions that explore the complex realm of the human psyche. The juxtaposition of images mimics the imprecise and non-linear workings of our private thoughts, memories and desires. The photographs selected from the Labyrinth of Desire for exhibition at The MAC examine five bodies of work: Liquid City (1991-1999), sub rosa (1995-1997), Arena (2002-2005), Faithless Grottoes (2006-2008), and Revisitations (2009-current). Rodick says of his work, “what I’m looking for are images that feel more intimately real than our cursory experience of everyday life, images that give a voice to the worlds that live inside us and which somehow demand witness.”

The exhibition will be on view until May 1, 2013.
