Ushio & Noriko Shinohara 2016
LPM Projects presents:
Private Dinner Party for Ushio & Noriko Shinohara
Celebrating Noriko’s exhibition at Carleton University Art Gallery (CUAG), curated by Cayllan Cassavia.
Please join Carleton University Art Gallery (CUAG) for a conversation between Noriko Shinohara and curator Cayllan Cassavia, in conjunction with the exhibition Noriko Shinohara: Cutie and Bullie. They will discuss the centerpiece of the exhibition, a large painting entitled Love is a Roarrr—!!!, which immerses viewers in the narrative world of Cutie and Bullie, fictional characters representing the artist and her husband.
Noriko Shinohara is an independent Japanese-American artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. A multi-disciplinary artist, Shinohara has expressed herself through painting, sculpture, writing, and etching. Her Cutie and Bullie series inspired the 2013 Academy Award nominated documentary film Cutie and the Boxer, which focused on Noriko’s forty-year marriage to famed Japanese artist Ushio Shinohara.
Cayllan Cassavia is an emerging curator living and working in Ottawa. She completed her Masters of Art History at Carleton University, and has held internships with the National Gallery of Canada and the U.S. Embassy in Ottawa. Her interests include contemporary art, curatorial practices, and working with active artists.
Admission is free and everyone is welcome!
