Synthesis Opening Reception featuring Victoria Man...

Presented by Indianapolis Contemporary at Ash & Elm Cider Company

Join us opening night, July 17, 5:30-8pm, for an artist talk moderated by Sarah Urist Green (starts at 6pm), followed by a reception featuring a cider created by Ash & Elm for the exhibition using ingredients inspired by the artists’ work!

The exhibition, presented in partnership with Ash & Elm, is located in their production space, adjacent to the tasting room at 2112 East Washington Street. Parking is available in the Auto Value lot across on Washington Street or directly behind the building. Street parking is also available on Hamilton or Jefferson.

About the Exhibition

Synthesis features major installations by Brooklyn-based artist Victoria Manganiello (with Julian Goldman) and Indianapolis artist Lauren Zoll, who work at the intersection of art and science. Manganiello and Goldman’s installation references early computing history, while Zoll’s paintings convert light into electricity.

Manganiello and Goldman’s COMPUTER 1.0 pays homage to the forbearers of computer history, and the first computer—a mechanical loom; this installation uses hand-woven cloth with a programmed kinetic surface, recalling binary code, data, and communication infrastructure. Manganiello is developing a new textile-based installation for the exhibition as well.

Zoll’s ongoing Solar Paintings body of work utilizes Anthocyanin dye, a water-soluble red to blue pigment that comes from a flower or plant such as blackberries, cherries, blueberries, mulberries, and black beans. These pigments are often used in solar panels as a way of intersecting with light to recreate photosynthesis, and in these paintings to convert light into electrical energy.

Synthesis is presented by Ash & Elm, Purdue University Polytechnic High School, and Barnes & Thornburg.
