Can an exhibition be exhibitionist? The artists in this show are not, in fact, from Missouri (the more famous “show me state”) but their work puts on the razzle-dazzle it takes to win us over. From the full frontal exhibitionism of Emily Roz’s drawings to the burlesque videos of Rachel Rampleman and from the incendiary yet sparkly statements of Oasa DuVerney’s sculptures to the sheer joy of photographs by Chris Verene and The Self-Esteem Salon™, the projects on view nakedly reveal their desire to be desired.

"Changing Landscapes" in Chapel Hill, NC, opening December 6, 2015

"Changing Landscapes" in Chapel Hill, NC, opening December 6, 2015
The Horace Williams House
December 6 - December 23
Opening Reception: December 6, 2-4pm

“Changing Landscapes” is a collaborative history exhibition of the evolution and growth of the Horace Williams site with Preservation Chapel Hill and Emily Roz. The exhibition will include seven oil paintings by Emily Roz, whose subject matter is based on the Southern Magnolia tree located on the property, likely planted by the home’s namesake, Horace Williams, as well as a history of the site produced by Melanie Watson, an undergraduate at UNC, museum studies intern.

The idea behind the project was to unravel the more indepth history of the site, instead of focusing solely on the house. The research focuses on the history of the Horace Williams site as a whole. It follows a chronological progression through ownership and construction of the house, and how the site has transformed over time. Aside from the house itself, the plumbing, landscape, bell, and slave presence will all be addressed. The history is complimented by the artwork done by Emily Roz. 

Emily Roz, a New York based artist, was raised in Chapel Hill’s Battle Park neighborhood, and has developed a body of work that references the reproductive system of this specific magnolia tree which she has observed over the past 41 years. She uses the tree’s leaves and seed pods as a point of departure, and exaggerates their tactile and sensual qualities.

Preservation Chapel Hill operates the Horace Williams House as an example of adaptive reuse in historic preservation. The house is the only historic home open to the public in Chapel Hill, NC, and hosts monthly art and history exhibits.
