About the Exhibition

Providence College Galleries is thrilled to present a solo exhibition of work by Los Angeles-based artist Cammie Staros at the Reilly Gallery this fall. The exhibition will include a range of work spanning 2016 – 2021, including investigations in ceramics, neon, and stone. Staros’ dynamic sculptures and installations mine Classical antiquities and the contexts in which we view them. Through a combination of ancient techniques, contemporary sensibility, and museological display, her work folds the past in on itself to reveal semiotic systems developed and reinforced through art history. Staros challenges the dominant narrative, which places the relics of her own Greek lineage at the origin of the Western canon, adding broader regional and epochal references to reflect the overlapping nature of visual influence. This is the artist’s first institutional exhibition on the East Coast.

Organized by Former PCG Interim Director Kate McNamara.
