Dawn Roe Exhibition at White Box

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.

The White Box at the University of Oregon in Portland is a visual laboratory invested in the exploration and presentation of contemporary critical inquiry in the visual arts. The 1,500-square-foot-gallery is located at 24 NW 1st Ave in Old Town Chinatown, home to many cultural and art organizations at the heart of downtown Portland.
