Form+Content Gallery presents Shifting Baselines an exhibition of recent two dimensional and installation-based pieces by Ruthann Godollei, Teréz Iacovino and Mike Marks. The term “shifting baselines” comes from a marine biology concept that acknowledges a loss of perception of changes that occur to our structures and systems when each generation accepts what is currently normal.  These artists, who share printmaking backgrounds, offer clear assertions about our place in a diminished physical and political world. Godollei’s silkscreen, monoprint and letterpress prints use proclamations reminiscent of billboards and placards to provoke action in opposition to current societal inequties. Iacovino’s installations, sculptures, and works on paper address varied themes including systems of organization and control, familial dynamics and dysfunction, and an interest in DIY culture. Mike Mark’s intaglio and collagraph prints refer to his memory of life in West Virginia’s strip-mining regions and an analysis of industry’s severe depredations to the physical landscape.

Gallery hours: Thursday – Saturday, 12:00 – 6:00 pm and by appointment
Free and open to the public
