Details

WELCOME TO MY PARTY is a solo exhibition by Valerie George that reflects holistically on art and life in the form of installation art, video, performance, sculpture, photography, new media, and drawing. This exhibition marks fifteen years of work that has brought Valerie closer to her personal and professional goals and is a reflection on an acute understanding of self, service, fortitude and the bounds toward art making, personhood, and mortality. 

The process of selecting the included pieces has been influenced by the current moment in the Artist's life as she is promoted to Full Professor at the University of West Florida while contemplating her third recurrence of breast cancer. Each piece exemplifies moments when Valerie's life changed her art and art changed her life. In these works, Valerie nods to her punk roots and pays homage to the inspiring rebels in her family and the history of art.
