The Pollock Gallery presents an exhibition of work by M.F.A. candidate Gage Peer. Peer was born in El Paso to a family that is Swedish, Mexican, Comanche and French-Canadian. He has lived over much of the western United States. Coming from a family of bricklayers, mechanics, miners, butchers and teachers, he began working at a quarry in the San Francisco East Bay region of Richmond, California at 18 as a ground man for a hot-plant, a crush-plant picker, loader and heavy equipment operator. He attended the Art Institute of Chicago and the Santa Fe University of Art and Design, moving back and forth between the visual arts and poetry. His practice has constantly moved through and against the grains of labor, gender and sexuality, and critical race studies, each rooted in poetry. His work has revolved around a persistent desire to articulate alternative modes and feelings of kinship. For more information call 214.768.4439.
