Art gallery hosts “There’s No Evidence for Towers” photo exhibition

by Public Relations and Marketing | Published Nov 29, 2022

The Robert T. Wright Community Gallery of Art at the College of Lake County (CLC) presents Galit Julia Aloni’s “There’s No Evidence for Towers” through Dec. 15. The exhibit is free and open to the community.

The photo titled "Stereo Scope Mirror"Aloni is an Israeli artist working with photography, writing and video. Formerly from Tel Aviv, Israel, she is establishing her Master of Fine Arts studio practice in the photography department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Aloni’s photographic installation is gathered from quick, anecdotal, periodic visits to the Jordan Rift Valley region where Israel-Jordan and Palestine come together. In her first solo show in the United States, Aloni shares images that switch parallax perspectives between the two borders to highlight her desire to imagine and consider how things could have looked in a parallel world. Her viewpoint acts as an action of reform, reconciliation and defiance.

She plays with variations of photographic actions in landscape and tangles the familiar place with the loss of its orientation. These actions are a way to critique, question and reset the collective memory and its misconceptions. Drawing directly from Aloni’s experience of life in this place, these strategies are brought into the gallery where time is occupied, stagnant, split and violated.

The Robert T. Wright Community Gallery of Art is a major cultural resource for artists and Lake County residents alike. Established in 1981, the gallery is committed to displaying the works of Illinois artists and increasing the visibility of nationally known artists in Lake County. Gallery Hours are 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Hours vary during college breaks.
