Tabitha Soren’s name may sound familiar to you even if you don’t follow visual arts. In her 20s ad 30s, back in late 80s and 90s, the fine art photographer was a news reporter for MTV, as well as NBC and ABC. But she gave up that job to study photography and dedicate herself to a variety of projects.
One of those projects, Surface Tension, goes on view this week at the Transformer Station in Ohio City, her first solo museum show. The photos feature images on a computer screen, overlaid with smears and fingerprints, to make a statement about our passing engagement with what we see on our screens and the traces we leave behind.
The show comes to Cleveland from Wellesley College’s Davis Museum where it made its debut, and features several new pieces created especially for the Transformer Station.
The show opens with a reception Fri 10/25 @ 7-9pm featuring music by RA Washington It’s free and open to the public. Also opening is a second show, Undercurrents: A Photobook Exhibition, described as an “immersive exhibition” featuring photo books from all over the world which “explore the imperceptible and often chaotic forces that shape the world around us.” It was put together by the Transformer Station’s own Caitie Moore and Melissa Catanese and Ed Panar of Pittsburgh’s Spaces Corners.
Soren will also speak at the Transformer Station Sat 10/26 @ 1pm. That’s also free and open to all. The shows run through Sun 1/26/20.
