911 Seattle Media Arts Center is pleased to announce an
exhibition of new works by artist-in-residence Margot Quan Knight.
Entitled “Sur face” the exhibition runs through May 30th 2009. A
reception for the artist will be held from 6 to 9 pm at the Center with
the artist presenting a talk at 7:00 pm.
Knight is a recent MFA in Photography from the Milton Avery
Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson,
NY. Her 2008 solo exhibitions include the James Harris Gallery,
Seattle, Randall Scott Gallery, Washington DC, and the Pritchard
Gallery of the University of Idaho, Moscow. Since graduating from
Dartmouth College in 1999, she has exhibited nationally and
Sur face is a series of video experiments that Knight did while
thinking about two things: the relationship between a photographic
image and its referent and the relationship between an image and
the surface on which it appears. That surface, so necessary for the
image’s existence, seems both fragile and impenetrable. These
pieces are shown on monitors (not as video projections), to
emphasize their surface.
The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts provides major
underwriting for this exhibition with additional support from 4culture,
The Office Of Arts & Cultural Affairs, City of Seattle, and the James
