What does it mean?” is an interactive show that invites viewers to take each piece in and assign their own meaning to it and to see what meaning others have assigned to it.
Julia Josephines will be showing her personal collection as well as some of her originals. Themed around bananas and banana artwork it will focus on the concept that when art is shown to any group of people(s) they assign their own meanings to the art and how they connect with it. “ Artists who will also have pieces in “What does it mean?” include Cameron Kobes, Vika Sour, Rachel Nelson, Cammi Luna, Marti Hall, and Julia Josephine. All of the pieces are quite different, some paintings, some ceramics, some mixed media sculptures, all different interpretations of banana art. There will be no statement next to any of them. The viewers are invited to think about what the piece means to them and what they see in it. They then can write it on a piece of paper and tack it up on the wall next to the artwork on a bulletin board with notes of what other people see in the piece.
