This work investigates spaces and objects most often overlooked but serve specific roles in our daily routines. I am fascinated by the clues they can offer to the more complete context of how a space is used by an individual.

Artist Talk - Tate Foley

Friday, January 18, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Tate Foley's research focuses on phonetics and phonology. Through a blend of traditional and contemporary printmaking techniques, the work in this exhibition explores ideas of language and protest, spirituality, and race.
