Works by Jiha Moon and Brady Haston
There will be a reception Saturday, December 7, 6pm-8pm.
Noface Land by Jiha Moon
This is Jiha Moon’s first exhibit at Zeitgeist. Noface Land consists of paintings and a new series of ceramic masks. In the masks, she makes faces that are, “in-between past and present, historical and fictional, cultural specific and imaginative.”
For the masks, Moon has collaborated with sculptor, Michelle Laxalt and fiber artist Sonya Yong James.”The skin that Michelle creates gives me new faces to tattoo with my drawing. My clay beads and shaped ornamental elements will combine with Sonya’s fiber structures to create new narratives.”
Jiha Moon (b. 1973) is from DaeGu, Korea and lives and works in Atlanta, GA. Her works have been acquired by Asia Society, New York, NY, High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA, The Mint Museum of Art, Charlotte, NC, Smithsonian Institute, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC, Weatherspoon Museum of Art, Greensboro, NC and The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, VA. She is recipient of prestigious Joan Mitchell foundation’s painter and sculptor’s award.
Flipped by Brady Haston
Brady Haston’s artwork uses a postcolonial lens to investigate both the legacy of Andrew Jackson, and the point where Southern history becomes part of a larger narrative. Jacksonian political cartoons, silhouettes, and contemporary biography are the primary sources of information for his work. These works attempt to address the legacy of slavery and Indian Removal, that Jackson enabled through his actions and policies. This body of work becomes a conversation around our shared history and the undercurrents of white supremacy from our past and the malignant remnants that remain to this day. Jackson has become a symbol of the American experience that is both admirable and problematic.
Brady Haston lives and works in Nashville, TN. He received his BFA from MTSU and his MFA from Montana State University. This is his seventh solo show at Zeitgeist. He is a recipient of the 2016 Tennessee Arts Commission Grant and the 2016 Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant. He has been an associate professor at Watkins College of Art and Design since 2006.
