ART OPENING “Kelly O’Connor: Deepfake” at David Shelton Gallery

March 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

ON VIEW MARCH 8 – APRIL 27, 2024: Kelly O’Connor focuses on imagery of fabricated environments produced for mass consumption in the early days of technicolor pictures such as “The Wizard of Oz” and Disney theme parks in this exhibition at David Shelton Gallery.

O’Connor employs an inventive approach to her collage works and site-specific installations that challenges utopian ideals of Western folklore and popular culture. Her imagery often includes appropriated photographs of familiar, iconic scenes and memorabilia which she dissects through a critical lens.

The exhibition’s title, Deepfake, references various meanings of “deep”. Deep as in slang, interpreted to be authentic or difficult to understand. Deep in the physical sense, extending far down from the top or surface. Deep in a literary sense, very intense or extreme. Deepfake, a more recent, particular type of Artificial Intelligence. Each of these definitions inform the conceptual structure of the exhibition in which the work delves into perceptions of authenticity, identity, and shared experience through popular media and cultural engagement.
