Cody Hudson: Let’s Do Some Living After We Die

For Let’s Do Some Living After We Die, emergent artist Cody Hudson will create a new collage and sculpture installation. Hudson’s art work will explore feelings of euphoria and doom, community and solitude through the combination of found materials and media images, paintings, and drawing. The installation will change and grow in three intervals, May 11th, July 19th, and August 19th, during the six month exhibition period. Installed in the Foyer Project Space of the Art Center, this volatile mixture of optical information inspires visitors to consider the relationship between hopefulness and tragedy upon entering the building.  Hudson’s art work will explore feelings of euphoria and doom, community and solitude through the combination of found materials and media images, paintings, and drawing.

This installation takes place in conjunction with the upcoming exhibition Signs of the Apocalypse/Rapture curated by Front Forty Press, offering a provocative look into the current trend of blurring the line between annihilation and bliss in contemporary art, thought, and sound, held in Galleries 1, 2, and 3 at the Art Center from July 19 until September 29, 2009. The second phase of the installation includes the sound element: Life If — reprised (edit) by The Berg Sans Nipple; composed and improvised by Shane Aspegren & Lori Sean Berg.
