JAN 6 – APR 21, 2012

Joshua Luther’s multi-media exhibition is an exciting invitation for visitors to take a step back from the language that we all too often take for granted, and instead contemplate why it is that we are prepared to argue, fight, and sometimes die over various combinations of letter and syllables.  Luther received his BFA at Utah State University and his MFA from University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  Luther’s work is deeply influenced by his studies of epistemology and linguistics.

Joshua Luther was part of the Locals Only Gallery program, wherein UMOCA promotes local artists as they engage the contemporary art world. Selected solely from proposals submitted by Utah artists, the Locals Only Gallery provides these artists with a professional exhibition environment, prominent exposure to UMOCA visitors, and through UMOCA’s increasing national ties, the possibility of greater exposure around the country.
