CINCINNATI, Ohio—On Friday, September 23, from 6 to 8 p.m., the Cincinnati Arts Association’s Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts will kick off its 2016-17 exhibition season with two new photography exhibitions organized and presented by FotoFocus and curated by Artistic Director Kevin Moore. Three Works is an evocative selection of photographic manipulations by Marlo Pascual that combines photography and everyday objects. After Industry is an impressive selection of American and German photographers who examine post-industrial landscapes. (See separate press release for the concurrent exhibition After Industry.)
Marlo Pascual: Three Works will be featured in the Weston’s street-level exhibition space. A native of Nashville, TN, Pascual (New York, NY) creates enigmatic still lifes featuring found photographs juxtaposed with common objects. Three Works offers a tantalizing sample of Pascual’s creative manipulations of scale and photographic content.
