Andy Holtin: A Theatre of Objects

Flashpoint Gallery Presents
Andy Holtin's A Theatre of Objects
November 11 – December 21, 2011

Opening Reception: Friday, November 11, 6 – 8 p.m.
Art + Coffee: Artist Andy Holtin will be giving a talk at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s  Art + Coffee program on Sunday, November 13, 1:30pm.

Andy Holtin’s exhibition will fill Flashpoint Gallery with animated video screens and projectors that play on technology, performance and human relationships. Holtin will exhibit three new pieces that combine pre-recorded video screens and projectors that shift and rotate in real time.

Holtin develops a dynamic connection with each viewer by engaging them directly – to the extent that the viewer has to pass through and become physically immersed in much of the work. The artist explains, “The works generate different experiences and dialogues, both between themselves and with the viewer. These combinations heighten the sense of exploration as viewers move through, interact with and discover the moments and models of the theatre of objects.”

Holtin is also exhibiting new work with Galo Moncayo at the Georgetown University Spagnuolo Gallery. The View: Sculpture and Video on the Modeled Landscape is on view until December 9, 2011.
