Laura Halsey Brown, founder of senseofplace LAB 



Back Catalog is an art installation as a memoir. Four new gallery works incorporate art (never shown professionally) and/or processes,  influences that span 30 years – to form an installation. The pieces speak with one another, sharing intersections and expansions over a span of time. Back Catalog includes a new work based on earlier concepts, a recontextualization of an earlier work, a new work that includes an earlier work, and a (very) new work as a re-creation of an earlier work. Each of the four works has a relationship to ideas surrounding moving image, the Arte Povera movement from Italy/70's and Buddhist influences, such as 'being present'. Back Catalog was specifically curated for the Adobe Books Backroom Gallery, and uses art to articulate a person’s story.

The exhibition will incorporate the  launch of a shift in Laura Halsey Brown's project senseofplace LAB - as it becomes mobile and nomadic, with a primary relationship to arts education.
