On June 27, 2019, LSU MOA will open a new exhibition featuring figurative paintings by three contemporary artists whose work explores how we negotiate representations of self in public, private, and shared spaces. With vibrant color, collaged surfaces, and glitter, Jonathan Lyndon Chase’s visceral figures merge and fragment to represent fluid gender, sexual, and psychological states while confronting the social pressures surrounding masculinity, heteronormativity, and physical and mental fitness.

Artists include: Jonathan Lyndon Chase, Doron Langberg, and Heidi Hahn

Semblance: The Public/Private/Shared Self will be on view June 27 through October 6, 2019.
