The Art Galleries at TCU are pleased to present Persona, three solo exhibitions featuring the work of Richie Budd, Kris Pierce and John Rasimus. The exhibitions run February 25 – April 30, 2022 at Fort Worth Contemporary Art and opens with a reception for the artists on Friday, February 25, 6-8pm. Budd and Rasimus will present artist talks in the gallery on Saturday, February 26, at 2pm. Pierce will present an artist talk in the gallery on Saturday, March 26, at 2pm. Additional live programming to be confirmed soon.

 

The artists describe Persona as loosely referencing Ingmar Bergman’s 1966 Swedish film of the same title; an experimental, psychological drama renowned for its perplexing suggestion that the two main characters experience a type of an emotional convergence. Formatted as three concurrent solo exhibitions, the artists’ work circles ideas relating to identity, duality, and character as traits of humans’ inherent need to distinguish and validate their existence as individuals.

 

Through these individual presentations, the artists consider the development of persona in real and digital space, including involvement of physical senses. In different ways they each speak to a complicated desire to exist at the center of one’s own universe. Working within an anti-collaborative format, a web of connections between the artists’ approaches is revealed without the dynamics of a traditional group exhibition or the type of social alliance that informs much contemporary media.

Located in the same building that houses the School of Art, Moudy Gallery showcases student work, including exhibitions by undergraduates and MFA students. This 900-square-foot space also functions as a responsive place for one-off or pop-up projects that students and faculty develop. TCU regularly shows its support for local professional artists by providing a collaborative environment in the Moudy Gallery as a testing ground for work-in-progress. Exhibitions or events of this kind help artists get involved in numerous ways and significantly benefit TCU students by enabling them to develop their professional networks with the local creative community.

 

Fort Worth Contemporary Arts

Fort Worth Contemporary Arts (FWCA) is a satellite exhibition space located a few blocks from the School of Art, on the edge of the TCU campus. Situated on West Berry Street, a busy urban corridor, this 2,000-square-foot gallery is TCU’s public-facing art venue. It offers a great opportunity for students, faculty, staff and alumni to engage with the Dallas-Fort Worth community.

At FWCA, the curatorial focus revolves around national and international artists at different stages of their career. It often includes work that has never been shown in Texas before or that is made on-site during a residency period. This concentration means students have close access to high-quality art and can critically engage with artists on a one-on-one basis in the gallery.

Fort Worth Contemporary Arts is located at 2900 W. Berry St. on the edge of the TCU Campus, Fort Worth, TX 76109.
