The Liliana Bloch Gallery proudly presents Stay in Touch, a new public work by Ann Glazer. Stay in Touch is a memorial to a time when an acquaintance's phone number would be scribbled on a scrap of paper, a make-shift surface or the back of a hand. It is a bittersweet tribute to connections made, however fleeting, with the people that come and go through our lives.
Stay in Touch consists of a 19' printed vinyl leaf on which a name and phone number has been hastily written in Sharpie. The work, attached to the outside gallery wall, appears to have found a resting spot, blown there from somewhere else. It speaks to the chance nature of our interactions and the impact technology has had on how we stay connected.
Ann Glazer creates works that cross mediums. Her experimentation with new processes and techniques evoke personal narratives of everyday life. She lives and works in Dallas and New York City. Glazer received a BA from Brown University, an MFA from the Art Institute of Chicago, and was awarded fellowships from the Dallas Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has been shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) Miami, Florida, The Torrance Art Museum, Torrance, California, the Reading Room, Women & Their Work (Austin), Dallas Center for Contemporary Art, the McKinney Avenue Contemporary, Barry Whistler, Conduit, AIR (NYC), DW and Kirk Hopper Fine Art and Liliana Bloch Galleries.
