Art Exhibitions by HAZE MAT and Sara Serratos Open April 28 at Finch Lane Gallery

Finch Lane Gallery (Salt Lake Arts Council)

The Finch Lane Gallery presents two new art exhibitions:
HAZE MAT: SUPREME CLIENTELEMENTAL (AAYYZEMM-AATT) never ready to wear and Sara Serratos: Mystic tongues and ears struggle with our structured brain. These exhibitions will be open to the public from April 28 – June 8 at 54 Finch Lane, SLC. There will be an artist reception on Friday, April 28, 6-9pm. Members of the public are invited to attend. Finch Lane Gallery is open Tuesdays, 9:30am-8:30pm, and Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9:30am-5pm.


As a neo-Marxian science fiction printmaking and performance project, HAZE MAT’s exhibition critiques the fashion industry by rendering clothing and its consumption strange. The practice involves various media including performance, tapestry paintings, fabric-based printmaking, photography, artist’s books, and other conceptual interventions into mass media. Patrick Winfield Vogel’s and Albert Abdul-Barr Wang’s collaborative project, HAZE MAT, is focused on social critique through printmaking, performance, science fiction, fabric exploration and critical theory. Patrick Winfield Vogel is a sculptor and performer in the ongoing science fiction story termed North America, and Albert Abdul-Barr Wang is a Salt Lake City-based conceptual photographer, fabric, tapestry, painter, sculptor, and installation artist.

Sara Serratos – Mystic tongues and ears struggle with our structured brain

Sara Serratos’ new exhibition asks the question, “What happens when somebody moves between cultures and starts their life over again?” As a migrant from the global south to the global north, Serratos began to use art as a sheltered place to experiment with her feelings and to observe human behavior. Many of these observed aspects of culture, such as voices, accents, languages, handwritings, sounds, music, and lyrics, are explored in Mystic tongues and ears struggle with our structured brain. Sara Serratos is a visual artist based in Salt Lake City, Utah. Born in Nahua land (colonially known as Cuautitlán, Estado de México, México), her artwork explores language, landscape, inhabitable places, the environmental and socioeconomic implications of architecture (mainly in housing), pre-Columbian imagery, notions of race construct, and migration drawing from her own experience.
