Brian Hitselberger: Counterspell
Reception: Saturday, August 19 at 5pm
Counterspell, by Brian Hitselberger fundamentally addresses new threats to the LGBTQ community that our current political culture encourages. In collaboration with fellow Queer artists, Hitselberger and friends create talismans against hate. Through wall drawings, paintings, and sculptures, Counterspell becomes an important antidote and remediation. Participants include Jonathan Bouknight, Clay McLaurin, Geof Teague, Mica Smith, David Robinson, Robert Lansden, and John Folsom.
Brian Hitselberger (b. 1982) is an artist living and working in Athens, Georgia. He is currently Assistant Professor of Painting and Printmaking in the Art Department of Piedmont College.
