JULY 30 – OCTOBER 3, 2010 – The Aspen Art Museum
The Aspen Art Museum’s third Jane and Marc Nathanson Distinguished Artist in Residence is New York-based artist Marlo Pascual. Pascual combines glamorous photographs of women from the 1940s and 50s with found objects and light sources to create brooding, psychologically charged work. Pascual’s elegant installations and theatrical lighting—varying from old lamps and candlelight to fluorescents and colored theater gels—animate the women in the photographs, enacting the dramatic potential frozen in the still frames of a bygone era. The hope and allure of Hollywood’s past is transmuted into melancholy, reflecting the unfulfilled dreams of countless anonymous actresses and models. This will be Marlo Pascual’s first one-person museum exhibition.

The AAM Jane and Marc Nathanson Distinguished Artist in Residence program furthers the museum’s goal of engaging the larger community with contemporary art. Residencies can last between forty-eight hours and two months, resulting in a new body of work exhibited at the AAM.

Marlo Pascual received her MFA from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia in 2007. 1994 BA, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN.
