Denisovan Now on View!

It’s always a thrill to open a new show! Denisovan by Heather D. Freeman, Associate Professor of Art at UNC Charlotte, is now on view in Pease Gallery.

The exhibition is a show of prints and text from Denisovan, her interactive artist’s book and smartphone app.

The story is a fictional imagining of a girl who died 40,000 years ago, whose bone fragments were found in a Siberian cave. This exhibition will explore the artist’s interpretation of the child’s relationships and day-to-day existence, explained through the text and images of her original digital book.

In addition to these beautiful large prints, smaller (8.5″ x 11″) prints and printed books will be available for purchase ($10-$15). Proceeds benefit the Art Gallery’s student initiatives and programming.

Please join us for an artist lecture, followed by a closing reception, on August 28 beginning at 4 p.m. in Pease Auditorium.
