911 Seattle Media Arts Center invites you to “Between Here and a Kind of Fleshlessness”, an installation of new works by Tivon Rice.
The exhibition has been extended through March 31, with a panel discussion on “Art & New Technology” on Saturday March 14 at 8 pm, featuring Tivon Rice, Margot Quan Knight, Joseph Gray and moderated by Affiliate Curator Steven Michael Vroom.
Rice’s video sculptures invite the viewer to explore presence, distance, and the senses through form and imagery. Using video projections, real-time text, and viewer-initiated perceptual loops, Rice confronts the viewer, creating moments where he “…orders, and undermines, seduces and repels”, according to art critic Regina Hackett.
Tivon Rice (b. 1978) is an artist and current PhD student at the University of Washington Center for Digital Art & Experimental Media. Rice began his exploration of image and form at the University of Colorado, where he received a BFA in both Electronic Media and Sculpture (2000).
Since earning his MFA from the University of Washington in 2006 Rice has received numerous local and national awards including the prestigious Joan Mitchell Foundation MFA Grant and the WSAC/Artist Trust Fellowship. He has exhibited extensively with solo shows throughout the northwest and group shows in New York and Miami. Rice’s work is represented by the Lawrimore Project.
