In Beyond Beyond Beyond, by our Emerging Artist Catie Dillon, viewers get a glimpse of the world created by the artist during this unprecedented time of ambiguity.  “Inspired by fugitive visions of childhood and the nostalgia associated with recreational play, Dillon references her first memories of making: building blanket forts, mapping sidewalk chalk trails, weaving bracelets, and molding castles of sand. Looking to Foucault’s concept of the heterotopia, Dillon creates worlds inside worlds that are neither utopian or dystopian. Rather, Dillon’s worlds are intermediate spaces that allow for exploration and discovery and, crucially, facilitate a cognitive juncture in the realities of daily life. ” Currently residing in Pittsburgh, her work has been exhibited in numerous group exhibitions in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Italy, and Portugal. Dillon will give a lecture on Wednesday, September 22 at 5:10pm at the McDonough.
