Sarah Hobbs Artist Talk

Sarah Hobbs will discuss her body of work in her first Indianapolis exhibition Psychological Traces, currently at the CityWay Gallery curated by the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art.

Hobbs’ images are about the psychological space created by the compulsions and neurotic tendencies of human behavior. She photographs carefully constructed tableaus of domestic environments where common objects, arranged to excess, are evidence of irresistible impulses that plague human behaviors such as perfectionism, obsessive compulsiveness and social phobias. While humorous and haunting, these scenes of domestic life suggest that our most comfortable spaces can be the place of the most uneasiness.

Hobbs lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia and received a BFA in Art History and an MFA in Photography from the University of Georgia, Athens. Her work is in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Columbus Museum of Art (GA), Brooklyn Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago), and the High Museum of Art (Atlanta).

The talk will take place on Wednesday, April 19th at 7pm  in the CityWay Gallery curated by iMOCA located in the lower level of the CityWay on South Street. Parking is available in the CityWay garage and limited metered street spaces.

This event is presented in partnership with iMOCA, Buckingham Companies and CityWay.

iMOCA is supported from grants and funding from the Efroymson Family Fund, The Indianapolis Foundation, Herbert Simon Family Foundation, Lilly Endowment, Allen Whitehill Clowes Charitable Foundation, Christel DeHaan Family Foundation, Halstead Architects, ESL/Spectrum, R&M Electric, Buckingham Companies, National Performance Network, Visual Artists Network, Arthur Jordan Foundation, ArtsAlliance for Contemporary Glass, Centaur Gaming, 20×200, Bluebeard and Edington Gallery.

Tom Hubbard Artist Talk

November 1, 2016

Tom Hubbard is speaking about Recoil, an iMOCA commissioned installation of ceramic guns imprinted with names of events, quotes from speeches, and writings about guns in contemporary American culture. In addition, Hubbard is showing pieces from this series at the Indy 1500 Gun & Knife Show as would a gun manufacturer or show vendor. The artist will speak about the project and what was learned from this experience.

Recoil is currently on view at iMOCA at the Murphy until Nov. 19 and iMOCA at CityWay until Dec. 31, 2016. The presentation and catalogue are part of an artist residency sponsored by the National Performance Network/Visual Artists Network. NPN/VAN

About the Artist:
Tom Hubbard is an interdisciplinary artist working on design, fine art and public art projects. His approach is rooted in his design training and the belief that the solution often comes from the problem. Through a process of inquiry, research and immersion, he explores, interprets and distills visual opportunities to reach solutions that are at once specific, unique and meaningful. As a result, Hubbard has produced work ranging from corporate identity systems and packaging to public art installations and exhibitions of photography, mixed media and ceramics. His work has been exhibited widely in both the U.S. and The Netherlands and is included in several private and corporate collections. In addition to his commission for iMOCA, he is working on several public art projects in both Cleveland and Columbus, OH

Tom Hubbard was born in San Francisco, CA and received a BFA from Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. Hubbard grew up in the Midwest and lived in New England as well as The Netherlands and Northeast Ohio before moving to Augusta, GA in 2016.

About NPN/VAN:
Through philanthropic support and partnerships, the NPN/VAN pursues its vision of “fostering diversity and artistic exploration, to integrate the arts into public experience, further artistic pluralism and act as an advocate for cultural equity and social justice. Its vision for the world is egalitarian, innovative and collaborative.”

Paula Katz writes in the catalogue that “Recoil is a long time in the making, not just in the literal labor to fashion it – a huge undertaking – but also through the social and historical place from which it draws context. While one could argue the gun control debate from which Recoil derives its framework goes back to the initiation of the Second Amendment, this detailed artwork leans more toward recent events.”

This project is made possible in part through support from the National Performance Network’s Visual Artists Network. Major contributors are the Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the Ford Foundation and Pollock-Krasner Foundation.

Samuel Levi Jones Conversation

October 21, 2015

Public conversation with the artist and Paula Katz, executive director of iMOCA.

Jones’ work is informed by historical source material and early modes of representation in documentary practice. He explores the framing of power and struggles between exclusion and equality by desecrating historical material, then re-imagining new works. With an emphasis on race and superiority, Jones investigates issues of manipulation and the rejection of control in a broad sense.
