Blubby Clubhouse: A Pop-up Exhibition by Heidi Blunt
One event on Jul 7, 2019 at 12:00 pm
Prøve Gallery hosts a pop-up exhibition entitled Blubby Clubhouse in its exhibition and performance space in Downtown Duluth. The two-day event shows experimental installation work by local artist Heidi Blunt.
Blubby Clubhouse is an exhibition of new work by Blunt, whose emerging voice delights at the intersection of marginalized large bodies and a secret clubhouse of a feminine kid circa 1985. Blunt’s paintings of rounded fat bodies (called “blubbies”) come pouring off the wall with an open invitation for viewers to interact with the abundance of joy and playfulness in her current improvisational studio practice where a “more is more” mentality reigns.
Blunt has a B.A. in Art, with an emphasis on painting and drawing, from the College of St. Scholastica and is currently an MFA candidate in visual arts at Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier, Vt. Blunt’s work has been featured at Prøve Gallery in numerous previous exhibitions, including WTF! What the Feminist Art Exhibition (2019), A Dozen Years of Art, Music & Swearing (2016) and most recently in Honestly, Tho … (2019).
