Family Resemblance

SWC Exhibition

March 27, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Family Resemblance
Sallie Scheufler
March 6 – March 27, 2020
First Friday: March 6, 6-8 pm
Closing Reception: March 27, 6-8 pm

In Family Resemblance, Sallie Scheufler presents text, videos, and photographs of herself and the women in her family. Taking a critical look at her personal history, Scheufler uses time-based media to explore how relationships within her family affect her sense of self, performed and inherited. Staged portraits utilize tools found in the beauty industry to draw attention to physical features, alike and unlike. She dresses in drag to become her older sister. She and her mom get matching hairdos. Her little sister applies her make-up as she does to herself. Text throughout the exhibition recounts stories of superficial desires and the ways that the women in her family perform gender. Family Resemblance addresses beauty standards, wanting what we don’t have, and growing up in makeover culture.

Sallie Scheufler is an interdisciplinary artist currently living in Albuquerque, NM. Scheufler uses her personal history as artistic fodder, in the context of feminist theory and familial relationships through performative video and sound installations, live participatory performance, photography, and sculptural installation. Scheufler has exhibited work in museums and galleries nationally including the Center for Contemporary Art, Northlight Gallery, 516 ARTS, and the University of New Mexico Art Museum. Scheufler has been awarded a Beaumont Newhall Fellowship and a Robert Heinecken scholarship, among others. She received her MFA in studio art from the University of New Mexico and her BFA from Arizona State University. When she is not in the studio, Scheufler works as part-time faculty in photography at the University of New Mexico and is the Assistant Director at Richard Levy Gallery.
