KQED: Gallery Crawl (2 of 38)
« | »

In April 2009, GALLERY CRAWL visits with Melanie Pullen to learn more about her series and meta-series of photographs on the topic of war, and how they relate to her highly successful HIGH FASHION CRIME SCENES exhibition and catalog from 2005. Employing movie studios and fashion models, Pullen spent years staging scenes for her VIOLENT TIMES photographs, which serve as a critique of the media's role in glamorizing war and violence. Down the block at Rena Bransten Gallery, Marci Washington describes her new series of paintings, DARK MIRROR, and the secret narrative behind the haunting images inspired by cannibalism and vampirism, while Tara Tucker discusses her childhood experiences with taxidermy and her current show FOREIGN RELATIONS, which calls on animals to represent stories of human conflict.
