X-RA*DI*ANCE REVISITED AT THE LINDA MATNEY GALLERY
X-RA*DI*ANCE, an exhibition of X-ray related art curated by Lita Tirak, was a milestone for the Linda Matney Gallery and the Williamsburg community. It featured the electric spark prints by the nineteenth-century Boston inventor Thomas Kinraide, contemporary spark prints by Jeff Behary, installations of glowing irradiated bodies marked with terrorism by Diane Covert, and the X-ray photographs of British artist Nick Veasey. In 2013, the Daily Press listed X-RA*DI*ANCE in top five exhibitions in Hampton Roads. Now, four years later, the Linda Matney Gallery is holding an event:X-RA*DI*ANCE REVISITED. On Friday, April 28th, the X-ray art will re-appear on the gallery walls for an exclusive one-evening engagement. Lita Tirak will deliver a meditative reflection on the aesthetics of X-ray images and the significance of the original exhibit. Jeff Behary, former Director of the Electrotherapy Museum, will demonstrate fascinating nineteenth-century electrical marvels used to make some of the art on the walls. Refreshments will be provided and conversation will be lively. Please join us on Friday, April 28th, 7-9pm at the Linda Matney Gallery for X-RA*DI*ANCE REVISITED.
