New work by Eric Zimmerman (MFA in Studio Art, 2005) is featured in a solo exhibition, Elegy for Left Hand Alone, at Art Palace in Houston, Texas. The exhibition will be on view April 10 – May 23, 2015. From the press release:

Zimmerman’s new drawings, sculpture, zine, and sound piece contained in the exhibition are references to the human place within the world and our effect upon it. Present in this new work is an oblique questioning of the way in which we construct knowledge and a direct interrogation of our need for explanation, quantification, and understanding. A subversion of these needs is sought by placing a range of images and objects within context and proximity of one another in order to establish a series of open-ended and leading propositions.

Elegy for Left Hand Alone was reviewed in Glasstire and Zimmerman was interviewed in Conflict of Interest.
