I am pretty excited about this exhibition, it is the first time I have shown a group of photos from my Memory of Science I series together. It also has been great to make a couple of new connections. The discussions I have had with Shreepad began to light a fire under me to get a collaboration I have in the beginning phases into a higher gear. Those of you that are interested, the collaboration in the progress is with my best friend and talented scientist, Mattina Alonge (you can read a couple of her blog posts here on Feed The Data Monster.)

Attempted Meanings, Curated by Shreepad Joglekar
LUBBOCK – The Texas Tech University School of Art is pleased to announce Attempted Meanings, an exhibition curated by emerging artist Shreepad Joglekar, presenting photographs by Gregory T. Davis and Kimberly Turner. Viewing is fromMonday, March 31 – Sunday, April 13, in the Folio Gallery. Attempted Meanings is the fourth exhibition in Serial Experiments in Artist-Curated Micro-Exhibitions. Joglekar will present a paper related to this exhibition at the 46thAnnual Comparative Literature Symposium. His talk is scheduled for the session on Friday, April 11, 4:45 – 6 p.m. in a panel entitled “Realisms: Theory and Practice” in the Mesa Room of the TTU Student Union Building. The exhibition and presentation will be free and open to the public.
Attempted Meanings exhibits two bodies of works by artists with very different intentions. Individually each body of work responds to (and also preserves) the scientific and technological contexts within which it is created. While seen together these works reference, in Slavoj Žižek’s words, the unknown known(s) that the same scientific and technological contexts have shaped in our psyches. In this way, the meanings attempted here necessarily exist outside the visuality of individual images.
Shreepad Joglekar (born in Solapur, India) is a lens-based artist living and working in Manhattan, KS. He holds a BFA from Sir J.J. institute of Applied Art in Mumbai, India, and an MFA from Texas Tech University. Joglekar has participated in residencies at Weir Farm National Historic Site in Branchville, the Millay Colony for the Arts in Austerlitz, and A.I.R. Studio in Paducah. Recent exhibitions include American Sites at Kalamazoo College Gallery in Kalamazoo, and Filtered Permeabilityat Indiana Southeast University in New Albany. Joglekar is currently an Assistant Professor of Photography at Kansas State University.
Serial Experiments in Artist-Curated Micro-Exhibitions is a program of exhibitions providing five artists each with the opportunity to realize innovative curatorial projects in the Folio Gallery during the spring semester. Series curator, Jason Derouin, is a student in the Fine Arts Doctoral Program specializing in Critical Studies and Artistic Practice.
