Anne Greer and Fredric B. Garonzik Family Gallery

Life/Like presents works from two recent series by emerging artist Martine Gutierrez (American, b. 1989) that consider themes of transformation, intimacy, identity, and reality. A nuanced exploration of gender roles lies at the heart of much of Gutierrez’s work. Her interest in boundaries—especially artificial boundaries—often leads Gutierrez to play with the viewer’s expectations and perception of reality.

Joan Jonas and the Mirror

Once called the “Mother of all Performance Art,” Joan Jonas ’58 has used mirrors in her groundbreaking multimedia works since the late 1960s. From early performances captured on 16mm film, to recent installation pieces, Jonas uses the concept of the mirror to show us that images are not facts, but reflections of our individual imaginations and assumptions.
