Thanks to a colleague’s recommendation I stopped by Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn., on Tuesday to attend an exhibit and related talk.
“[Dis]covering the Veil: Visible and Invisible Space,” curated by Jennifer Heath, is challenging, delightful, humorous and somber all rolled into one. The exhibit features the work of three dozen visual artists. It’s not just about veils in a literal sense, but also about the historical practice or act of covering. Two days later I’m still considering the exhibit and Heath’s presentation. I didn’t intend to photograph at the exhibit, but I was drawn to the piece above and how one young woman responded to it. I’m sorry to say I don’t have the artist’s name readily available.
“[Dis]covering the Veil: Visible and Invisible Space” remains on display until Sunday, Sept. 25. For more information on this exhibit, a larger exhibition connected to it or Heath’s work, visit www.TheVeilBook.com.
