Now Showing in TSU Gallery – Video artist Sarah Paul


The Department of Fine Arts at Tarleton State University will present an exhibition entitled Slow Grease, by multimedia artist Sarah Paul. The exhibition will be on view weekdays in the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Gallery, February 17th to March 21st 2014.

Sarah Paul is a cross disciplinary artist focusing on the intersection of popular culture, fine art and social action. She strives to balance sociopolitical content with compelling visual structure. Her videos, installations and performances integrate infectious vocal melody, luscious moving images, humor, and maximal theatrical spectacle. Most of her work derives from an outrageous narrative that she has concocted in order to explore a marginalized subject. She is always rooting for the underdog. In the past she has supported such underdogs as fat ladies, gender queers, and the mentally ill. At the moment, her underdog is Cleveland, the place where she lives and works.

Sarah Paul is currently serving as chair of the Digital Arts Department at the Cleveland Institute of Art. She received her MFA from the University of New York at Buffalo, NY in 2007. She also holds a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from the University of New York at Albany. Recent exhibitions include the 7th Annual Women’s Caucus for Art International Video Shorts Festival in New York, NY, and the traveling exhibition Goodnight Cleveland: A Little Miss Cleveland Bus Tour, which exhibited in Cleveland, OH, Detroit, MI, and Buffalo, NY.
