Aug. 21-Oct. 6: WSU Schnitzer Museum presents ‘Self•ish’

Artwork featuring women's faces and a giant face and eye.

PULLMAN, Wash. – The WSU Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art will present the Fine Arts Faculty Exhibition “Self•ish: Doug Gast, Joe Hedges and Io Palmer,” Aug. 21 – Oct. 6.

The exhibition will be located in Borth Gallery with a reception and gallery talk noon-1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, with all three artists. All exhibits at the museum are free and open to the public.

Self•ish, features the work of Doug Gast (WSU Tri-Cities), Joe Hedges (WSU Pullman) and Io Palmer (WSU Pullman). Though varied in process and mediums, all three artists have assembled an exhibition reflecting on a central theme — the formation and depiction of personhood within our multifaceted and progressively digital era.

Using his own self-image, Hedges’ work speaks to fragmented identities through online storage and distortion, whereas Gast’s project probes the margin of private and public image use across popular image-sharing platforms. Lastly, Palmer takes a laborious view of a culture’s insatiable appetite for abundant images and adornment.
