Jessica Chastain by Maura Brewer

Jessica Chastain

Solo exhibition by Maura Brewer

Curated by Juli Carson


October 1 – December 10, 2016

University Art Gallery

Opening reception: Saturday, October 1 from 2– 5 p.m.

The UAG’s Emerging Artist Series presents three filmic works by Maura Brewer each taking as its site a recent film by the actress Jessica Chastain: Zero Dark Thirty (2012), Interstellar (2014) and The Martian (2015). In all three films, Chastain plays a similar character: a high-achieving career woman dedicated to the non-romantic pursuit of a male counterpart. Brewer’s installation presents Hollywood film as a site for analysis and deconstruction.

All exhibitions are free admission and open to the public.
