Opening Reception: Thursday, October 29, 6-8pm

P•P•O•W Gallery, in conjunction with Dotty Attie's exhibition, is pleased to present Looking Forward, Feeling Backwards in Gallery 2 curated by Capricious and artist Tammy Rae Carland. This exhibition is inspired by the forthcoming "Feminist Issue" of Capricious Magazine based on an open call for work about feminist feelings.

By insisting that a dialogue on feelings inflames the specter of feminism, and by asking what the world of feelings looks like, the curators have selected photographic and video works that hold potential for transformative ideas and experience. Empathetic vision, relentless loss, identity melancholia, compulsive hope, political depression, retooling trauma, shameless shame and feelings that have no names are all contending with one another in this group show of eight emerging artists. The curatorial selection gives the personal, political, social and emotional equal weight and emphasizes a generational lens on hope, humor and limitless self-invention.

Tammy Rae Carland was born in Portland Maine in 1965. She received her MFA from UC Irvine, her BA from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington and attended the Whitney Independent Study Program. She is an Associate Professor at the California College of the Arts where she also chairs the Photography Program. She is represented by Silverman Gallery in San Francisco and primarily works with photography, experimental video and small run publications. Capricious chose to collaborate with her because her work, throughout her career, is seen as pioneering in the realm of contemporary queer and feminist culture.
