Temporary Stay: Kristen Neville Taylor

Exhibition Website

Jun 1 2017 - Aug 20 2017

In Ursula Le Guin's groundbreaking feminist essay "Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction," the author suggests that stories are containers, or carrier bags, of meaning. Fundamentally feminine rather than masculine, Le Guin's model for storytelling inspired Neville Taylor to create a series of containers organized according to the model of a story arc-exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. Bringing together two- and three-dimensional work, Neville Taylor's installation challenges us to reconsider our assumptions about nature, narrative, and culture.
