In The Front Room, Maps Contemporary Art Space organizes three consecutive, four day solo-exhibitions, as prelude (and preview) to Maps’ upcoming exhibition season. Giving over the Front Room to the three local artists exhibiting at B.J. Vogt’s Bellville space in the Spring, the Front Room will serve as a conceptual lab for the artists themselves, who will still be shaping their respective projects. Artist Kathy Cannistra, taking on the role of her alter-ego, Kathy Cooper, will transform the space into a media center for the activities of the super-hero Glitterus and her nemesis Nimbus. Chris Vogt will preview his BFA Exhibition, presenting works on paper and sculpture reminiscent of phone and p.c. skins, MySpace page layouts, and other visual identities of contemporary tech culture. Courtney Henson’s performance-based project centers on “twin personas” that will continue to evolve into and through her exhibition at Maps.
