Avalanche Art Space
AVALANCHE ART SPACE presents SARA S. WALLACH // BE REAL OR DIE a collection of images made between 2016–2020 which represent the artists mastery at transforming the mundane, overlooked, leftover and forgotten objects of the world around us into images that are saturated with a sense of meaning and belonging. The title, Be Real or Die, refers to the artist’s photographic practice of making art with reality, but is more pointed to the essence of the artist herself, “If I did not have this form of creative outlet, I would die. At least my soul would.”
This is Wallach’s first solo show.
Preview: Sept. 10, Thursday 6-9 p.m.
Opening: Sept. 11, Friday 6-9 p.m.
Open Nights from 6-9 p.m.: Sept. 10-12, 17-20 and anytime by appointment
