SCAD will be hosting a reception on Thursday, July 28, 2016 from 5:30-6:30 p.m., celebrating “Interior States,” an exhibition by Atlanta-based photographer Sarah Hobbs, on display from June 17-Sept. 24, 2016.
Hobbs assembles complex installations in private spaces, such as domestic interiors, hotel rooms and self-storage facilities. She then photographs each space and prints each image in large format to invite the viewer to “enter” each unique interior. Through careful representation, her work wryly engages with feelings familiar to many, including indecisiveness, perfectionism, denial and escapism. This exhibition is a concise survey of Hobbs’ work from 1999 through 2016.
Hobbs’ photographs are represented in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago in Illinois, the Brooklyn Museum in New York, the Columbus Museum in Columbus, Georgia, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in California, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas. She holds a B.F.A. and an M.F.A. from the University of Georgia in Athens. The reception, panel discussion and exhibition are free and open to the public.
