Shannon Duncan | Itemized Accounts: You Can't Take It with You

September 23rd - October 28th, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday September 23rd, 2017 6:00 - 9:00 PM

BLUEorange is proud to present Itemized Accounts: You Can't take It with You featuring the new photographs of Houston Artist Shannon Duncan. 

This portrait series is an investigation of the weight given to inanimate objects. Each image documents a collaboration between the artist (Shannon Duncan) and her subject. In this collaboration, the subject brings items of personal value to Duncan's studio. Together, they create an arrangement that conceals physical identity. Through the installation of handwritten text and photographic imagery, the viewer receives insight about the anonymous subject through their identified objects. 

ITEMIZE YOUR OBJECTS! OPEN CALL FOR SUBJECTS:

Please join artist Shannon Duncan at BLUEorange Contemporary to have a one-of-a-kind portrait made of you with your most valued objects. Each subject will bring objects of their choice to be photographed with and write a description of each of their items. Each participant will become part of Duncan's new body of work Itemized Accounts: You Can't Take It with You. Examples can be seen on the artist's website (http://www.shannonduncan.info)

Event is open to the public.
