Art alum Dawn Roe's exhibition Goldfields opens February 7 at The White Box at University of Oregon in Portland.
Goldfields is a work prompted by the history and landscape of the eponymous region of Victoria, Australia. The three-channel video installation is a critical consideration of cultural memory in relation to the opposing perspectives of indigenous and colonial settler narratives, pastoral landscape representations, folklore and myth.
Roe, an artist and educator, produces work that involves the singular and combined use of still photographs and digital video and is concerned with themes of perception, time and memory.
She will give an artist talk on February 9 at 7 p.m. The exhibition runs through March 23, 2013.
