Body of Evidence is an exhibition of assemblage and photography by retired VCU art professor, Chuck Scalin. This show marks Scalin's 25th solo exhibition in Richmond. His new body of work is based on an interest in popular culture and police procedurals as seen in film and television and Scalin invites the viewing audience to enter into the narrative he has created:
“You are invited to examine a number of recently discovered, long-forgotten boxes containing evidence for unsolved mysteries. Perhaps you will be able to uncover the meaning hidden in these enigmatic clues and unlock their dark puzzles.”A group of dramatic black and white photographs of light within darkness will accompany the 14 assemblages along with a video by Megan McKissack. The show opens at Ghostprint Gallery on Thursday, March 1st with a private reception from 6–8 pm. The exhibition continues on First Friday, March 2 from 6-9 p.m. and remains on view through March 31st.
