Closing Reception for Matt Lively's Compound

Enjoy refreshments and discuss the project with Matt Lively and curator John Lee Matney


"This is an exhibit of in-progress work surrounding the story of a boy who finds a factory that controls the weather. I have created stage sets, objects, and paintings that describe the isolated world in which this story takes place. These objects will later be used to develop the next iteration of this story through photography. The installation will use the language of museum artifacts (think, natural history museum diorama) to create the feeling of immersion into the world of the story. I want to encourage visitors to interact with the exhibit by taking photographs. " Matt Lively, May 2019
