OPENING RECEPTION | BRIDGET ROUNTREE

THE HILL STREE COUNTRY CLUB

is pleased to present our upcoming solo exhibition

Valuable Content

featuring works by Bridget Roundtree

Valuable Content juxtaposes social, political, and art historical imagery as a way to question perceived value and generate discussions of content within a visual language. The works look at the everyday world with the idea that we are not only passively interacting with the environment; we are actually actively thinking it. By challenging dualistic representations of the savior and saved, winner and loser, victim and rescuer, the artist seeks to query the ideas and philosophies that lead to hierarchical structures of thought. A simultaneity of perspectives occur by reading one image through the other, opening up a new space between what is considered to be known, and what remains unknown. Portraits are dissociated from their original context, by which the system in which they normally function is brought into question. Exploring found imagery becomes a way to revitalize, reorganize, and reveal the possibility of new relationships among previously defined histories.
