Katherine G. Moore: the space between landing and falling

Burton D. Morgan Gallery

Katherine G. Moore presents a personal and physical transformation through chemotherapy. Moore, a dancer and choreographer, recently survived Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Shortly after finishing chemotherapy, she did an Instagram experiment: 100 days of expressive movement and writing. the space between landing and falling extends this work, exposing a period of immense transition, disorientation, and isolation as Moore reckoned with her new post-cancer body and life.


Eva Polzer: ✨just girlie things✨

CapSOUL Gallery

In ✨just girlie things✨, Eva Polzer explores the complicated patriarchal “nurturing” of femininity and how it encourages girls and women to simultaneously hate and sexualize their bodies. Polzer creates sculptures inspired by the Borzoi dog and the Sphynx cat to discuss the normalization of blind devotion, unwanted attention, and the desire to retain some kind of power through avoidance.
