Jaclyn Wright: High Visibility (Blaze Orange)

Mar 18, 2022 6:00 pm-9:00 pm

Join us Friday, March 18, from 6–9pm as we celebrate the opening of Jaclyn’s Wright High Visibility (Blaze Orange) in the Projects Gallery.

In High Visibility (Blaze Orange), artist Jaclyn Wright uses debris collected from gun ranges on public lands to explore the intersections of photography, capitalism, and colonialism. Employing original images as well as archival photographs, maps, and diagrams from the University of Utah’s J. Willard Marriott Library Special Collections, Wright investigates the supporting role photography plays in the abstraction of nature, a process that reinforces the codification of land use based on gender, race, and class.
